Violence Prevention

Chastyn Webster is our Health Educator for Health Promotions and Violence Prevention. She discusses a variety of topics including interpersonal violence, fundamental mental health education and bystander intervention skills. She is trained to present evidence-based violence prevention curriculum such as: “Safe Dates”, a curriculum for healthy relationships for teenagers; “I am Little Red,” a program discussing human trafficking for teenagers using the common “Little Red Riding Hood” fairytale; “Coaching Boys into Men,” for coaches of high-school aged boys to learn healthy relationships skills; and “Safety Matters” from the Monique Burr Foundation, for youth from elementary to high school discussing child abuse, internet safety and identifying safe adults.

She is also a trained facilitator of, “Living Well with Chronic Conditions” and “Take Charge of Your Diabetes,” which discusses nutrition and provides participants with a tool box of skills to manage their chronic conditions. She frequently presents information regarding the fundamentals of healthy eating and exercising. She can alter the information to better fit the population, for example, by providing nutrition information for those with diabetes or even aging adults.

If you are interested in holding a program via the internet to ensure social distancing practices, please feel free to contact her at cwebster@sullivanhealth.org or by phone at 423.279.2791 for information regarding her services.

The Violence Prevention Program focuses on preventing and educating on topics such as sexual assault, rape, bullying, suicide, anger, and bystander intervention. Our goal is to promote healthy relationships for our children, teens, and adults within Sullivan County.
