The National Prevention Science Coalition to Improve Lives has created this video for researchers to learn how to engage effectively with policymakers. This training provides guidance on how to frame written products in an accessible format for policymakers. We also teach communication skills that will facilitate policymakers' understanding of prevention science and its policy relevance. We believe this training will be helpful in ensuring our research has a sustainable impact on the phenomena we seek to prevent (e.g., behavioral and mental health problems) and conditions that foster healthy outcomes for children, families and communities.
