Health Education & Promotion
Pacific County provides health education and promotion services on a variety of health topics including: Substance Use Prevention, Tobacco Prevention & Control, Obesity Prevention, Mental Health promotion, Nutrition, and Physical Activity. The majority of our health education occurs directly in our local schools with students at multiple grade levels in each of our five local districts receiving curriculum directly.
In addition to school based curriculum, we also work closely with and help support several community coalitions in an effort to strengthen community capacity to address public health needs. These groups include WellSpring Community Network (south county substance use prevention and mental health promotion), Teen Advocacy Coalition (TAC- north county SA prevention and mental health promotion), Healthy Communities Work group, Peninsula Farm to School, Naselle SHAC, North County Gardening Coalition, and the Pacific County Health Care Coalition.
