Learn About Prevention In Utah

The power of prevention

SUMH provides guidance and technical support to prevention professionals In Utah. We are committed to reducing the incidence of substance use disorders, suicide, and other behavioral health problems.

We support local prevention coalitions, working to carry out evidence-based programs throughout Utah. For more information on joining a coalition in your area, check out our state map to contact your local area prevention professionals.

Effective prevention requires local communities to identify unique risk and protective factors that predict problem behaviors. We endorse SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework to guide prevention strategies.

You can be part of the solution in your community. Read more about the research, goals, and projected results of this project by reading Unleashing the Power of Prevention.
