Prevention Planning ToolkitThere are few shared tools for prevention planning that are used widely across, states, jurisdictions and communities. This not only means that individual prevention planning bodies must spend time and energy recreating tools and processes that others have developed, but it is harder for the field to share and compare data and information. CANTASD partnered with Chapin Hall in developing a structured framework for prevention planning. The Framework and tools are now available, and we are continuing to develop a living toolkit that:
- enhances alignment, collaboration and resource sharing across a range of state level partners, and
- provides a structure to inform and shape local prevention planning efforts while still allowing flexibility and responsiveness to local needs and priorities.
