Hancock County Community Partnership
Celebrating over 25 years of substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion, the Hancock County Community Partnership is pleased to be apart of Findlay and the surrounding communities. The Partnership is comprised of concerned citizens who focus on the evaluation and promotion of effective prevention programs regarding alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse, other addictions, and mental health. Since 1990, the Hancock County Community Partnership has adopted existing ways to enhance the quality of life by mobilizing the community and integrating efforts to prevent individual, family, and community problems associated with alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse, and by increasing awareness regarding mental health issues.
We believe that the efforts of the Hancock County Community Partnership should focus on everyone who lives, works, or plays in Findlay/Hancock County.
We are currently looking for community members who would like to be a part of the Community Partnership by becoming a Community Sector Representative in one of the following areas (click on the area to get more information):

Substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion
We believe substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion fosters the health and safety of the individuals and communities.
We believe in and have adopted the Lifestyle Risk Reduction Model and the Asset Model as the most appropriate evidence-based means through which to deliver substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion.
We will utilize the most effective strategies to deliver substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion as suggested in the Ohio Taxonomy of Prevention (Information dissemination, prevention education, Positive alternative, Environmental strategies, community-based processes, and/or identification of problems and referral to services).
Any and all substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion strategies to be delivered will be determined by utilizing the Strategic Prevention Framework.
We will allow community-identified and community-based Recovery Orientated System of Care Outcome Measures to inform strategies being delivered to address current community needs and advance substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion.
All strategies determined to be appropriate to address current community needs and advance substance abuse and mental health promotion will be vetted through the lens of the Lifestyle Risk Reduction Model, the Asset Model, and Recovery Orientated System of Care Outcome Measures.
