Intended Audience: This webinar is aimed at federal, state, and county level stakeholders from multiple sectors – behavioral health, general health, public health, education, child welfare, and juvenile justice – who are interested in primary prevention. The information may also be of interest to researchers, community based organizations, and others who are concerned with promoting individual, family, and community wellbeing.
