Steering Committee members (listed below) have drafted a Strategic Plan that sets forward activities aligned with the 7 Action Steps of Unleashing the Power of Prevention, the framework that guides the work of the Coalition for the Promotion of Behavioral Health.We need your knowledge, creative ideas, diverse perspectives, and enthusiasm to ensure that the Strategic Plan will effectively address the Coalition’s primary goals!
The Steering Committee invites you to attend or participate in a special meeting to review the DraftStrategic Plan to Ensure the Healthy Development for All Youth by Unleashing the Power of Prevention.

Please note that the meeting occurs one day in advance of the annual conference of the Society for Social Work and Research.
A draft strategic plan will be sent to Coalition members in early January for review prior to the meeting in San Francisco. We are seeking your feedback on the draft strategic plan and your ideas about how to best implement the activities identified in the plan. The agenda for the meeting will include a presentation of the Strategic Plan followed by a review of the strategies necessary to implement strategic planning activities aligned with the 7 Action Steps of Unleashing the Power of Prevention. We also plan to present specific ideas about strategies to reach our goal of reducing disparities in behavioral health problems that were developed with input from an interdisciplinary team of nationally recognized experts.
