About Us

Who we are:

Healthy Missoula Youth is a coalition facilitated by the Missoula City-County Health Department and made up of multiple community partners working to prevent harms related to youth substance use. Our focus is to reduce rates of drinking, marijuana, tobacco use, as well as other harmful substances, among youth.


We envision a thriving Missoula County where individuals and families feel supported by their community and are empowered to make choices that positively impact their health around substances.

2. Address and change the laws and norms that lead to substance use among youth. 

3. Increase awareness about substance use related issues with parents, youth, and community members.
