What We Do

The Community Engagement Institute’s Prevention Initiative takes a comprehensive approach to behavioral health promotion and prevention, joining hands with community members across the state. We work with the Kansas Prevention Collaborative to support community coalitions, guide the use of evidence-based strategies, create toolkits for Kansans, increase interaction among coalitions, and support the Kansas prevention network. Our goal is also to facilitate and encourage the sharing of behavioral health promotion and prevention efforts being used in communities across Kansas.

This communication "hub" includes strategies, such as:

  • Online Tools

  • Development of a Statewide Prevention Coalition

  • Statewide Awareness Efforts

  • Social Marketing

  • Training and Events
