“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”– Margaret Mead

Local Prevention Councils are exactly what Margaret Mead had in mind. A diverse group of committed volunteers who come together to raise awareness and identify solutions to address the profound impact of substance misuse.

Using proven prevention strategies of assessment, readiness, planning, and implementation as a guide, and integrating multifaceted approaches, such advertising, educational workshops and grassroots advocacy, Local Prevention Councils work toward stemming the tide of substance misuse within their own communities.

Thirty-four Local Prevention Councils work at the grassroots level to raise awareness of substance misuse and offer early intervention plans and evaluation. While members might come from all walks of life, they share a passion and commitment to find ways to make a difference in the behavioral health of their community.

With grants funded by the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, Amplify works with each Local Prevention Council offering guidance, resources and encouragement as members come together to clear paths toward positive changes in their towns.
