Violence Prevention Resources

Public health efforts to prevent violence have been at work in communities around the country for decades. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides an explanation of violence prevention, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and evidence-based practices that can be replicated. This helped to inform our approach to violence prevention, which can be found on our About OVP page

Below are resources developed by the Office of Violence Prevention to support safety in the community. 

Address Your Stress

You feel stressed - we feel it too. Since 2020, stress levels have gone up in populations across the world. But stress doesn’t have to derail our lives. OVP's new Address Your Stress campaign explains how stress affects the mind and body - and what you can do to interrupt stress before it causes harm for you, your family, and your community.
