Evidence Based Strategies
Community coalitions care a great deal about using resources well to address the challenges that can be prevented and to promote overall well-being of all citizens. Resources are limited, so it is important to choose strategies that have been proven to be effective whenever possible.
This page will share materials that may be useful to you and your coalition during planning and it will be updated over time. Please Subscribe to stay informed of updates. Contact Us to tell us what materials or strategies you find most effective that can be shared with other Kansas coalitions.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) offers guidance regarding strategies with proven positive results, and SAMHSA has published several guides to promote awareness of programs, practices, and policies that are known to be effective.
