We understand that prevention and health providers are looking for the most effective way to spend their funds. Prevention Plus Wellness programs have a high cost-benefit ratio, plus they are easy to implement by just reading the program script. 

Because our programs are just a single session and address multiple mental and physical health risk behaviors, a single program can reach large numbers of youth and have many health outcomes.

Wellness is prevention oriented and is a key component of achieving and maintaining mental and physical wellbeing.

Research shows that wellness-promoting behaviors protect against mental illness and promote mental health.

#4: Wellness empowers one to choose positive identities and behaviors.

Wellness emphasizes having positive goals, learning self-regulation skills, and choosing a healthy identity and habits.

#5: Wellness is prevention’s ultimate goal.

Wellness is not just about reducing health risks, but promoting good physical and mental health and quality of life.
