The Ottawa County Prevention Coalition is a community coalition utilizing multi-agency collaboration to remove barriers, provide education, raise awareness, and encourage healthy lifestyles in our community. The Coalition is funded by the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Seneca, Ottawa, Sandusky and Wyandot Counties. The Coalition was formed in 2021 and is comprised of members from multiple sectors of the community. This collaborative approach allows for the coalition to focus on community mental health and addiction education, prevention services and enhanced advocacy efforts. Members unify their efforts and yield a structured planning process that promotes and encourages civic engagement. When goals are met within the community, we improve the overall quality of life for community residents.
