With broad representation from state-level policy makers, county leadership, local human services providers and coalitions, the Cross Systems’ Prevention Workgroup (CSPW) is exploring the need for a cross-agency, comprehensive, strategic prevention plan focused on preventing and reducing youth problem behaviors.
The CSPW will develop recommendations for the use of system-focused, proven-effective prevention strategies with the goals of:
- ensuring the effectiveness of prevention across the continuum of strategies
- increasing sustainable funding resources for Commonwealth prevention initiatives
- ensuring the stewardship of taxpayer dollars
