The Montana Institute 2019 - Reasons for HOPE: Building Positive, Healthy, Resilient Communities

There are so many reasons for HOPE! This summer, Dr. Jeff Linkenbach and the dynamic Montana Summer Institute faculty will share cutting-edge science, tools and resources for building healthy, resilient communities. The 2019 Montana Institute will focus on how Science of the Positive, Positive Community Norms, and Health Outcomes from Positive Experience (H.O.P.E) are creating new opportunities in prevention and driving community transformation on a wide range of health and safety issues. Join us in beautiful Big Sky to learn how positive, norms-based approaches can power up your public health and prevention practices, improve your leadership skills, and increase the effectiveness and sustainability of your projects.

This event is perfect for prevention leaders working on underage, college, and adult substance use; child abuse prevention; distracted & impaired driving; marijuana legalization; sexual assault and dating violence; opioid abuse, and more.
