Participate in Prevention Survey

Cynthia from SJI Prevention Coalition sends this request…

Please take a moment (7 – 10 minutes) to complete the 2017 CPWI Community Survey. The December 30 deadline is approaching!  If you have completed the survey, Thank you! If you have circulated the survey, please do so again with a thank you and the ask…

To date, 176 surveys have been completed, and our goal is 325, which is what we achieved in our benchmark year in 2014! 

71% of the respondents have been female, and our hope is to have a sample that reflects our island’s demographics.  Male participation is highly encouraged!

Please circulate with a personal note of invitation and explanation to those adults within your circle of influence.  Our goal is at least 325 surveys that represent the demographics of our adult population.  Please encourage males to respond, also, as this is the demographic we do not match (usually 70+% female, and less than 30% males).  Encourage both parents to respond!

Below are the English and Spanish links.  If you need another language, please let me know, and I will see if DBHR has it in that format.  If you have people that need to complete the survey via paper and pencil please let Cindy Gutierrez, Corresponding Secretary know and she will email you the file that you can print and copy, and then you need to get the surveys back to her.



The Community Prevention and Wellness Initiative (CPWI) Community Survey is an anonymous annual statewide survey administered by all of the CPWI coalitions in Washington state.

The Community Survey captures our local San Juan Island attitudes about teen alcohol and drug use, as well as prevention programming.  This data helps to inform our coalition’s strategies, as well as the state strategies.

This is an annual requirement for our funding, but more importantly, knowing the opinion of our community helps us to make informed decisions, and to help us better communicate the prevention work to the community.  Last year, we were 100 surveys short of our goal, so I am going to be very vigilant this year in reminding you to complete AND circulate the survey!

Thank you for all you do.  I encourage you to copy the links and send out a short personal note.
