The Mercer County Prevention Coalition was formed in August 2015, and will continue to expand ATOD (Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs) and suicide prevention throughout the community.  We are a group of concerned citizens that want to make our community aware and educated about the prevention of drugs and suicide.


“To improve the quality of lives of Mercer County residents by preventing the harmful consequences of substance use and abuse among youth, families, and the larger community.”


“Vision of bringing together resources, wisdom, talents and passion to create a happy and healthy community through prevention of destructive decisions.”
