Our Local Coalitions

Little Compton

Reach Newsletter May Edition

This month, we are shining a spotlight on Mental Health Awareness Month, where we explore strategies for promoting mental well-being and supporting those in need. In this edition, we also delve into the critical topic of the effects of alcohol on teenage brain development. Gain a deeper understanding of the risks involved and discover resources to help educate and protect our youth.

We Envision a County that Embraces and Promotes the Health and Safety of All Residents.

The Newport County Prevention Coalition is comprised of voluntary members representing and serving multiple sectors of our region. Our focus is to develop, implement, and advocate for effective community based prevention and wellness strategies.

Our commitment to supporting Newport County residents prompts us to continue expanding and determine unmet needs in our community, while seeking to engage residents in our efforts.

We are always looking for members of our community to join our efforts and become apart of the solution! 

Rhode Island Regional Resources

The Rhode Island Regional Coalitions are comprised of seven regions covering the State. The Coalitions represents parents, youth, law enforcement, schools, healthcare, businesses, government officials and community leaders. We assess the region’s substance use challenges and work together to develop policies and programs using evidence-based practices.
