The Educating Communities for Healthy Outcomes (ECHO) project is a two year initiative serving Martin, Dubois, Daviess, Jackson, and Orange Counties in order to reduce teen pregnancy rates. Through ECHO, HCET, in collaboration with Hoosier Uplands, will provide high school teens with an evidence-based curriculum program called LifeSkills Training. This program addresses risk and protective factors for teen pregnancy, including substance abuse, healthy relationships, family communication, emotion regulation, decision-making skills, media influences, and positive health. Additionally, we will be connnecting with guardians to provide supplemental parenting educational materials.
The project described is supported by Health Care Education and Training, Inc. (HCET) through Grant Number 1TP1AH000201 from the HHS Office of Population Affairs.
