- About Us
The Regional Prevention Center (RPC) of Johnson County is one of 10 regional prevention centers in Kansas that provides training and technical assistance, and helps communities leverage local, state and federal resources to reduce rates of substance use among youth. All of the Regional Prevention Centers in Kansas are funded, in part, by SAMHSA’s Substance Abuse Treatment and Prevention Block Grant. The Regional Prevention Center of Johnson County has been part of the Johnson County Mental Health Center since 1995.
The RPC assists individuals, families, organizations and policy makers concerned about the healthy development of young people by working together to prevent youth substance use and other problem behaviors. RPC staff members are trained in planning, evaluation, community organization, public policy and environmental change to implement best practices in prevention.
