Community Prevention And Wellness Initiative
Shelton School District has been selected to receive additional support to create healthier communities by keeping youth free from using and abusing alcohol and other drugs. The support, which includes funding for training, technical assistance, and community- and school-based substance abuse prevention programs, comes from the state Department of Social and Health Services’ Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery (DBHR).
Community Prevention and Wellness Initiative (CPWI) activities will be managed through The Mason County Public Health and Human Services Department in collaboration with a coalition that will be formed in Shelton. The coalition will consist of youth; parents/grandparents; school educators; law enforcement officials; faith leaders; civic/volunteer groups; representatives of sovereign tribes and local governments; business and the media; substance abuse prevention and treatment organizations; and youth-serving organizations.
