Community Consultations for Cohorts 4-6

Community Prevention and Wellness Initiative Community Consultations,

The Washington State Health Care Authority/Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery has partnered with the Washington State University IMPACT Research Lab to evaluate the effectiveness of CPWI communities in reducing adolescent substance use and related risk factors. The key findings of the evaluation are being developed into a one-pager handout for each community, which will be shared in advance of the consultations. These one-pagers are a great way for communities to showcase the results of their prevention efforts.

During the community consultations, the IMPACT Research Lab researchers will provide participants with the knowledge and tools to tailor the one-pagers to suit their local needs. The researchers will also answer participants’ questions, provide personalized feedback, and share some example one-pagers with evidence-based framing techniques for adolescent substance use prevention.

Goals of the Community Consultations:

  1. Familiarize the participants with the CPWI community one-pager handouts.
  2. Help participants understand and interpret their substance use prevention data.
  3. Teach participants how to personalize the one-pagers to suit their local needs.
  4. Empower participants to effectively tell their prevention story by using evidence-based messaging techniques.
