This summit is specifically planned for Prevention Specialists. However, The Mississippi Public Health Institute was awarded a Congregational Recovery Outreach Program (CROP) grant by the Mississippi Department of Mental Health. The purpose of the grant is to partner with and leverage Hinds County’s faith-based organizations to provide linkage to quality accessible care, increase outreach, build recovery pathways and provide an educated, welcoming, and supportive environment for African American (adults and adolescents) struggling with behavioral health challenges to find help and hope on their pathway to recovery. Prevention Specialists and those working with persons in recovery will benefit from this 3 day summit.

This prevention track is designed for anti-drug coalition leaders, community leaders, drug prevention personnel, education professionals, and those who want to launch a community anti-drug coalition in their environment. This training will feature both didactic instruction, breakouts and engaging group exercises. The track will offer three training sessions:
