Why plan? For whom? To serve the right program, practice or policy at the right time to the right people Who lives in your community? Age, Race/Ethnicity, Abilities, Economic status etc. In the county or tribe, what policies, programs and practices shelter youth and community from problem substance use or gambling? What supports positive mental health? What are the real risk trends? Is that what the data is saying?
What Norms are we trying to grow? Comprehensive plans are worthless if they measure program effectiveness but not meaning. Great leaders facilitate change AND transformation. ~Jeffrey W. Linkenbach
