A Healthy Lynnfield engages town departments, residents, school, parents, youth, the faith community, local governments, businesses, civic organizations and health professionals in an effort to promote health and reduce factors that contribute to substance misuse in our community.
Our efforts include:
In partnership with Lynnfield Public Schools, we work to review school-based health policy, implement social emotional supports for all students, provide education for parents on factors that put youth at risk for substance misuse, and teach integrated health and social emotional curriculum. These strategies help prevent early use and keep young people healthy.
