Pre K-12

Mathewson Early Prevention Program (MEPP)

The Mathewson Early Prevention Program (MEPP) is TYR’s PreK-12 initiative. We are partnering with the Washoe County School District to build a prevention, intervention, and recovery framework of tools and resources for students to use to be their healthiest selves. MEPP is currently in a planning year to determine how it can make the greatest impact for all 65,000 students in the district. This program will be designed to be academically rich, research based, data-driven, and nationally replicable. The goals are to help families, youth, and the community find the tools needed to have successful, substance-free lives and to change a generation in the way we think, talk, and act about prevention, intervention, and recovery.
