ICH is providing assessment and evaluation planning support to Bay State Community Services (BSCS) and their coalition of public health agencies in Quincy, Braintree, Milton, Randolph, and Weymouth during Year 1 of their MassCall3 youth substance misuse prevention grant issued by MDPH’s Bureau of Substance Addiction Services. In order to facilitate the development of a strategic plan for prevention of substance use among area youth, ICH supported BSCS with a participatory needs assessment planning process and the creation of qualitative data collection tools. ICH will also provide technical assistance with data management, data collection, and analysis in order to increase stakeholder capacity for assessment and evaluation.
