Winona Partners for Prevention of Alcohol & Marijuana Abuse

Winona State University has been selected to participate in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration’s “Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success” grant through the Minnesota Department of Human Services (MN DHS). The Partnership for Success grant is a five-year project focusing on preventing underage drinking among persons 18-20 and marijuana use among persons aged 18-25.

The project will assess the current needs of the Winona area and support the development of a local collaborative, Winona Partners 4 Prevention of Alcohol and Marijuana Abuse (Winona Partners 4 Prevention). The partnership aims to engage key partners to determine strategies to reduce underage drinking and marijuana use appropriate for the Winona area. Partners, including higher education institutions, students, city officials, residents, businesses, health care representatives, and law enforcement, are currently being invited to participate.
