South Central New Hampshire Public Health Network

The South Central Public Health Network (SCPHN) is one of 13 public health networks in NH and a unique collaborative of partner agencies that are working to enhance and improve community health and public health services across the 10 communities of Atkinson, Chester, Danville, Derry, Hampstead, Londonderry, Plaistow, Sandown, Salem and Windham in the southern NH. The collaborative is comprised of the following agencies which support the 5 scopes of work identified as priorities by the state: The Public Health Advisory Council is supported by the Greater Derry Community Health Services; the Substance Misuse Prevention work is supported by the Community Alliance for Teen Safety; the Young Adult Strategies work is supported by the Upper Room; the Continuum of Care for Substance Use Disorders work is supported by the Center for Life Management; and the Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response work is supported by Parkland Medical Center. The South Central PHN’s host agency, Granite United Way, convenes, coordinates, and facilitates these partner agencies that are contributing to the health of the region. The Substance Misuse Prevention Coordinator and Lead provide leadership and coordination to impact substance misuse and related health promotion activities by implementing, promoting and advancing evidence-based primary prevention approaches, programs, policies, and services.
