The Partners in Prevention Conference will be held October 1-2, 2015 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Houston, Texas.

The Welcome and Opening Keynote will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 1 and the Conference will end at 3:00pm on Friday, October 2.

Join us in Houston, Texas to learn from state and national prevention experts. The Partners in Prevention (PIP) Conference, sponsored by the Prevention and Early Intervention Division and the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), Texas Home Visiting Program, is a multi-day training opportunity for professionals and service providers in the following fields:

  • child abuse prevention,
  • early childhood development,
  • family violence awareness,
  • home visiting,
  • juvenile delinquency prevention,
  • mental health promotion,
  • positive youth development, and
  • substance abuse prevention

Increased communication, understanding, and active collaboration across these service systems will help strengthen families as well as improve communities. In order to bring applicable topics to all prevention partners a number of Texas state agencies collaborate to put on this training opportunity. These agencies include the Department of State Health Services, the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services, the Health and Human Services Commission, the Texas Juvenile Justice Department, and the Texas Education Agency. As always, thank you for your support.
