Learn how a guiding vision has helped these states stay centered on prevention amid competing priorities.

Bring your team together to discuss reflections and ideas sparked by the Roundtable stories. Consider using the following questions as discussion prompts: 

  1. Who has been (or should be) involved in the development of a shared vision for prevention?  
  2. How can we clearly articulate our vision with internal and external partners?  
  3. How can our prevention plan help move us one step closer to our vision?  

Pair the video with the Building Capacity to Address Common Challenges planning tool as your team explores approaches to communicate with partners about prevention.
