We are proud to partner with many great local organizations supporting family health and mental health.
It is never too early or too late to gain knowledge and develop skills needed for strong mental health and healthy family dynamics that lead to resilient youth who make good choices.
Check out these one-page resources for building resiliency in youth.
You can also visit the National Institute for Health's website for great tips on talking to youth about alcohol.
In addition to our own programs found on our PROGRAM PAGE, WCCTC is proud to partner with these organizations to build a stronger, safer and more resilient West Chester.
Local Prevention Offerings
STRENGTHENING FAMILIES 10-14
As the name implies, this weekly, evidence-based program is specifically designed to strengthen families with children ages 10-14. It is also named the number one prevention program out of 6,000 for long-term effects on substance use and misuse by Dr. David Foxcroft, Oxford Brookes University.
West Chester Communities That Care is an organization which aims to improve outcomes for youth by raising awareness of the importance of primary prevention, reducing risk factors and bolstering protective factors that build resilient youth, strong families and thriving communities. We also recognize that addicition and mental health issues already impact many families in our area and the important role of substance use and mental health treatment.
