In this video, Margo Leitschuh (pictured left), Communications Coordinator with Missouri Partners in Prevention, and Joan Masters, Senior Coordinator with Missouri Partners in Prevention, discuss Step Two of the Strategic Prevention Framework. Partners in Prevention is Missouri's Higher Education Substance Misuse Consortium dedicated to creating healthy and safe college campuses.
"You can't start efforts on campus until there is readiness among stakeholders or the campus community," Margo explained. "So for example, our coalition does not take on new campuses until we know that they are ready to be fully engaged members."
Once you've identified readiness and resources, the next step is to make your prevention team stronger.
"In order to strengthen your team, identify what gaps in knowledge your prevention team might have," Joan said in the video.
"Provide online or in-person training experiences that help them understand the context of this work."
