Foundations of Prevention

To prepare for this Discussion:

• Review the “National Prevention Strategy.”

• Review the web linked information on Risk and Protective factors.

• Review the media segment “Prevention,” with Dr. Mark Kiselica. Think about the prevention approaches that Dr. Kiselica discusses and how these may be exemplified.

• Consider social issues, problems, or concerns and how they might differently be addressed through public health and mental health prevention strategies or initiatives.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 a comparison (similarities and differences) of public health prevention and mental health prevention. In your comparison, provide specific examples of how prevention approaches and strategies are used to addresses issues, problems, or concerns related to both public and mental health.
