To promote the health and wellbeing of our community
KANA’s Outreach and Prevention programs build a foundation for a healthy future by addressing the psychosocial factors that contribute to negative health behaviors. We provide education, outreach, and tools to support healthy lifestyle choices for residents in Kodiak and the surrounding villages. Our department focuses on prevention strategies in four areas: substance use, tobacco, suicide, and interpersonal violence. We empower individuals to make healthy choices, teach life skills and coping strategies, and promote connectedness and family engagement. In addition, our staff offers trainings by request to organizations and the general public. By equipping our community members with effective tools, we lay a foundation for healthy future generations.
