The WV Collegiate Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success (C-SPF PFS) initiative’s overall goal is to prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance misuse and its related problems among higher education students (ages 18 and older) in a 21-county area covering southern West Virginia. The federal grant was awarded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to Marshall University’s Center of Excellence for Recovery. The five-year initiative began August 31, 2020.

How it started!! —> How it ended…

Carley Knuckles (@carley.knuckles) our student leader from WVU Tech (@wvu_tech) had a great time tabling at Healing Appalachia (@healingappalachia).
“We had some wind and had to adjust, but overall we had a great time networking, ...collaborating, and listening to great music!” Carley says her phone died the second day so she caught very few pictures sadly of day 2!
“It is very important our presence was established at this event so individuals know what colleges in Southern West Virginia have specific prevention efforts for substance use!”

Way to go Carley!

Here is just a few #whatsyourmorewv pictures from the event!
