Our Media Campaigns
West Spokane Wellness Partnerships Positive Social Norm Campaign
West Spokane Wellness Partnership implements a Positive Social Norm Media Campaign which is rooted in the Science of the Positive by Dr. Jeff Linkenbach. Because we are a data driven and data informed coalition, we want to ensure that we are correctly educating the public about the strengths of our youth, families, and community. We share our data in a positive and strengths-based light.
