Healthy Relationship Initiative

Revere CARES established the Healthy Relationship Initiative, recommended by the Healthy Adolescent Relationship Task Force, based on the results of the MGH CCHI Revere Community Health Assessment in 2012.

The Healthy Relationship Initiative seeks to prevent/reduce early initiation of sexual activity, sexually transmitted diseases, and teen pregnancy as well as prevent dating/domestic violence.  To address these issues, the Healthy Relationship Task Force will focus on the development of a comprehensive out-of-school plan for middle and high school youth and the adoption of a city-wide youth asset development model; address curriculum issues and gaps in additional prevention and intervention services; and develop a social marketing campaign.  Throughout the process the task force will work to increase community capacity and readiness.

 

In 2010, Revere CARES established the Healthy Adolescent Relationship Task Force, an ad hoc task force, to address high rates of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Revere CARES facilitated a community process, a review of best practices, and the development of recommendations.
