PREVENTION PARTNERSHIP INTERNATIONAL
Prevention Partnership International (PPI) develops programs, provides training as well as consultation in support of children and families dealing with or at high risk for multiple problems: substance use disorders; multi-generational trauma; mental health challenges; cognitive deficits; and child abuse/neglect and family violence. All are significant Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). More information on ACES is available under the Research tab.
Our partners include the National Association for Children of Addiction (NACoA), National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children, California Office of Child Abuse Prevention (OCAP), ACEs Connections, FIRST5, pilot sites (Uplift, Parisi House on the Hill, and Janus), White Bison, Courts, the Department of Social Services, and Behavioral Health Agencies, including mental health and substance use disorders treatment providers. Our programs serve families in their communities, churches and schools.
PPI provides regional agency and national trainings and conference presentations, in addition to publishing journal articles on practices and principles of effective prevention.
PPI's two main curriculums are:
Celebrating Families!™ serves the whole family: children ages birth-18, parents and caregivers, and is offered in English and Spanish, as well as adapted for Native Americans. For more information refer to Curriculums tab.
Keys to Healthy Living, an interactive classroom-based, substance-use prevention curriculum for grades 1-12. For more information refer to Curriculums tab.
PPI was founded by Rosemary Tisch, born from her passion for children and breaking the cycle of addiction in families.
PPI's fiscal agent is Domestic Violence Intervention Collaborative (DVIC), a 501c3 nonprofit.
