Henrico Area Prevention Services

Families, Schools, Communities

Prevention is a very broad word that is used in various fields. Henrico Prevention Services uses the term Prevention as it relates to the field of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Prevention. Our goal at Henrico Prevention Services is to promote wellness. Henrico Prevention Services supports individuals, family and community strengths, by reducing the influence of risk factors, and increasing protective factors. Addressing risks and building upon the strengths of youth, families, and communities averts the need for more costly substance use and mental health treatment services. Visit Henrico Prevention to learn more!
