CT Prevention Resources

CT Association of Prevention Professionals (CAPP)


The Connecticut Association of Prevention Professionals is a statewide network of prevention advocates that identifies and spreads awareness of behavioral health trends while ensuring growth of the field and providing resources across the state.


We envision CT as a state that: 1) makes prevention a priority, 2) celebrates positive, healthy choices and 3) responds proactively to behavioral health issues.


CAPP membership is comprised of community coalitions, behavioral health organizations, representatives of state agencies, law enforcement officers, academics, and other valuable stakeholders.
