About Community Coalition for a Safe Morris (CCSHM)
The Community Coalition for a Safe and Healthy Morris is funded through the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services and is a county-wide prevention coalition made up of an association of individuals and organizations that collaborate in the delivery of environmental strategies to prevent and reduce the harmful effects of alcohol and other drugs. The aim of prevention services is simply to work upstream – fix the bridge and stop people drowning in the first place.
CCSHM works with law enforcement, religious, civic, business and government organizations to provide community based prevention programs. This positively influences and enhances social norms while promoting pro-social behaviors and interactions among community residents.
Representatives from 12 sectors organize and meet to address local youth substance use. Together, as a coalition, they are driven by local conditions to implement local solutions that will build a safe, healthy and drug-free community.
