Youth-Led Prevention

 

 

.

 

 

Youth-led prevention addresses the emotional and behavioral health of youth and young adults.  It means that youth hear directly from their peers about handling life issues.  They are given a voice in planning, decision-making,  implementation and evaluation processes.  Youth are involved in the entire prevention process.

Ashland County youth-led prevention is oriented to helping youth build strong social/emotional assets and mental health to address a wide range of prevention topics such as suicide, substance use, bullying, violence and others.
