The Jessamine County Healthy and Safe Communities Coalition (formerly the National Safety Council accredited Safe Communities Coalition) is a collaboration of community partners that are committed to improving four priority health and safety issues as identified in our Community Health Assessment and Improvement Planning Process:

Chronic Disease

  • Health Promotion
  • Policy and Program Development
  • Funding

Mental Health

  • Advocacy
  • Prevention Programming

Safety

  • Infant/Child Fatality
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Motor Vehicle Safety

Substance Abuse/Drug Overdose

  • Reduce Access to illicit Drugs and Inappropriate Prescription Drug Use
  • Improve Drug Overdose Intervention
  • Effective Substance Abuse Prevention
  • Improve Early Intervention, Treatment, Mental Health & Re-Entry

Workgroups were formed for each priority health/safety topic to develop policies and define actions to target efforts that promote positive health behaviors and outcomes. These activities are outlined in the Jessamine County CHIP Workplan: 2018-2023.
