New Haven Prevention Council/OneStep Program
This is a longitudinal evaluation of a school-based health promotion and substance use prevention initiative for New Haven high school students. The initiative is supported through the New Haven Prevention Council, a coalition of community and school stakeholders funded through the Connecticut Department of Mental Health Addiction Services to prevent substance use and related risk behaviors in greater New Haven. The coalition supports implementation of the OneStep program with New Haven high school students. OneStep uses social marketing strategies in the school setting for health promotion and substance use prevention, and incorporates social media and positive youth development activities to influence social norms to promote healthy youth decision-making.
