Everyday Sustainability: Building a Foundation for Sustainable Prevention Throughout the SPF

Sustainability is one of the overarching principles of the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF). It sits in the middle of the Framework touching every step of the SPF. Yet we often fail to consider sustainability in our daily work. Sustainable, community-driven, outcome-focused substance misuse prevention isn’t built in the last 6 months of a grant cycle. Creating sustainable prevention happens every day, in every step of the SPF process. In this 90-minute webinar, we will explore how to build sustainability into each step of the SPF process through our daily prevention work.





  1. Define sustainability
  2. Describe how sustainability is woven into each step of the SPF process
  3. List the “everyday” tasks associated with building sustainable substance misuse prevention programs
