The College is pleased to have Prevention Institute co-hosting the 2016 Summit. Prevention Institute is a non-profit, national center dedicated to improving community health and wellbeing by building momentum for effective primary prevention. Primary prevention means taking action to build resilience and prevent problems before they occur. Prevention strategies can be effective in preventing, and reducing severity of some mental health conditions, such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Further, good prevention strategies can delay onset and support treatment outcomes for those with mental health conditions. The Institute's work is characterized by a strong commitment to community participation and promotion of equitable health outcomes among all social and economic groups.
