How Our Programs Work
Cost-Effective & Easy to Implement
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 screening & brief interventions are just a single session and address multiple mental and physical health risk behaviors, a single program can reach large numbers of youth or adults and have broad health outcomes.
