Prevention Action Alliance, in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, will host the Ohio Adult Allies Summit on December 6, at the Renaissance Columbus Westerville-Polaris Hotel.
The Prevention Action Alliance is an agency that promotes healthy lives through substance use prevention and fostering mental health wellness in adolescents. Part of the alliance includes the Ohio Youth-Led Prevention Network, a network of youth-led prevention providers. OYLPN realized a key player in fostering youth leaders is active adult allies.
“Adult allies educate young people in evidence-based strategies for prevention, empower them to create change in their communities, and advocate on behalf of them with school and community leaders,” notes the Ohio Adult Allies Summit description.
The summit will feature presentations and discussions on improving mental health outcomes for at risk youth, establishing resilient youth, and preventing substance use and suicide through youth-led programing.
Tickets for the event are available for $50 and includes breakfast and lunch.
