About Us

The Utah Prevention System is a group of several local-area coalitions working together to conduct prevention work for a better, safer Utah.

These coalitions strive to protect our communities, promote positive lifestyles, and prevent substance abuse and behavioral health problems.

Each coalition is empowered to adapt to the needs of the community by reducing risk factors and supporting protective factors relating to substance abuse, suicide, delinquency, crime and other problem behaviors.

Our commitment is to employ evidence-based programs, use researched prevention practices and develop environmental policies to achieve our goals.

Together, everyone plays a role in prevention.

Our Mission

We are determined to mobilize communities and prevent behavioral health problems in the state of Utah.

As a group of coalitions, and united in purpose, we hope to reduce and eliminate the use of drugs and other risky behaviors.

Our focus is on skill building for individuals, families, institutions and organizations. Each community member and every agency is essential in helping us build a better tomorrow. Together, we can accomplish our goals and unleash the power of evidence-based prevention and decrease the burden of behavioral health problems.
