As we gear up for Season Two of The Power of Prevention, let’s share in the excitement, and get ready for a ride that’s insightful, educational, and downright entertaining.
Season One Flashback
In season one, we explored the question, “What is Prevention?” Our guests shared different views, showing the range of thought within the prevention field. Kim Coronis (Season 1 Episode 11), from Breathe NH, shared that prevention means “raising awareness and knowledge.” To Coronis, prevention means “empowering others by giving them the tools they need.”
Suzanne Weete (Season 1 Episode 15), from Community Partners, sees prevention as “a proactive approach to handling needs before they become major issues.” She elaborates, ”The squeaky wheel always gets the grease. But what if we greased that wheel before it got squeaky? I think we need to move our thinking upstream past intervention and start thinking about how to improve our communities before a problem arises.”
As season one continued, we highlighted stories from professionals, community leaders, and everyday heroes, demonstrating the many ways individuals contribute to prevention. From small and impactful actions to significant initiatives, season one provided valuable insights on the impact of addressing problems in our communities head on.
Looking Towards Season Two
As we transition into season two, our focus will shift to the current landscape of prevention in New Hampshire, and the communitys’ ongoing efforts. We’ll dive into what is actively being done to promote prevention initiatives and explore innovative strategies that contribute to building resilient and proactive communities. We can’t wait to share more stories, strategies, and successes from the folks in the Granite State!
