Striving for informed decision-making across Connecticut, the CT Data Collaborative empowers an ecosystem of data users by democratizing access to public data and building data literacy. In addition to making data available, and staffing the Data Academy, CTDC manages content and functionality of CPES’ SEOW Prevention Data Portal.
The Open Data Initiative and Portal, formed as result of Governor Malloy’s Executive Order 39, provides open access to state agency data in its rawest form, as well as analysis and dissemination of the State's enterprise information assets.
The Prevention Training and Technical Assistance Service Center (TTASC), a prevention workforce development initiative, is funded by the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services as one of its Resource Links. Prevention TTASC’s singular goal is to create a robust, well-informed and educated prevention workforce in Connecticut. The Prevention TTASC accomplishes this goal by: increasing the vitality of coalition-based prevention efforts; increasing access to competency-based training for the prevention workforce, and improving the quality and relevance of the prevention field as a whole. Supported by three core partners: Cross Sector Consulting, Career TEAM, LLC, and the Connecticut Association of Prevention Professionals (CAPP), the Prevention TTASC leads a collective impact strategy to engage prevention partners in advancing the field of prevention and health promotion. Collective impact strategies organize diverse partners in a structured way around a common agenda to achieve social change – in this case prevention workforce development.
Connecticut Clearinghouse, a program of Wheeler Clinic and funded by the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, is the state’s premier library and resource center on substance use and mental health disorders, prevention, wellness, health promotion, recovery and many related topics. The Clearinghouse has books, DVDs, curricula, pamphlets, posters and fact sheets for all age groups. These resources are available for all Connecticut families, teachers, students, professionals, communities and children.
