Beginning in Fall 2012, Partners in Prevention began publishing monthly research briefs. Each month, PIP members and campus administrators will receive a one-page research brief to keep key players updated on the most recent trends in the health and safety behaviors of Missouri college students.
First implemented in 2007, the Missouri Assessment of College Health Behaviors (formerly referred to as the Missouri College Health Behavior Survey or MCHBS) is designed to understand the role of alcohol, drugs (illegal and prescription), mental health issues, and power-based personal violence on student health and wellness. The survey also assesses individual’s attitudes towards campus and community policies, other student’s behavior, and bystander interventions. The MACHB is administered online every spring to undergraduate students at Coalition campuses across the state.
Partners in Prevention (PIP) is Missouri’s higher education substance misuse consortium dedicated to creating healthy and safe college campuses. The coalition is comprised of 23 public and private colleges and universities across the state that work to lower high-risk behaviors among college students by implementing strategic plans for prevention using evidence-based strategies.
Alcohol and other drug prevention works to change the underlying conditions that lead to a problem. There are 3 types of prevention; primary, secondary, and tertiary.
First implemented in 2007 by Partners in Prevention, the Missouri College Health Behavior Survey (MCHBS) is designed to understand the role of alcohol, drugs (illegal and prescription), mental health issues, and gambling on student health and wellness. The survey also provides information regarding attitudes, perceptions of other student’s behaviors, campus and community laws, and policies. The MCHBS is administered online every Spring semester to undergraduate students at all coalition campuses across the state. The Partners in Prevention Coalition helps to implement and analyze the data collected from the survey, which in turn is used to design a variety of programming at participating colleges and universities.
