Regional Prevention Partnerships

The St. Johnsbury/Southern Essex District Office has received funding under the Regional Prevention Partnerships (RPP) Initiative. The RPP Initiative is the result of a cooperative agreement with the US Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
The Regional Prevention Partnership aims to reduce underage and binge drinking (ages 12-20), reduce prescription drug misuse/abuse (ages 12-25), and reduce marijuana consumption (ages 12-25) over a 5 year period (2015-2020).

The St. Johnsbury District Office is partnering with NVRH to convene community partners and lead a regional planning process to reduce substance abuse. This process will review local data, identify community assets, and identify any gaps in services, resulting in a regional strategic plan comprised of evidence-based prevention strategies to reduce adolescent and young adult substance abuse.

Cheryl Chandler, BSW, is the Regional Prevention Partnerships Coordinator. Chandler, a prevention professional, has experience managing local, state and federal grants, and implementing SAMHSA's Strategic Prevention Framework. Cheryl is responsible for overseeing the RPP grant and leading a community-based process to develop a regional substance abuse prevention plan.
