The mission of the Seacoast Public Health Network (SPHN) is to strengthen public health partnerships in emergency preparedness, community health, and substance misuse prevention in order to better serve our communities. Two primary roles of the SPHN are to coordinate regional planning and to develop networks of effective action to support that mission.
We provide technical assistance on statewide and regional prevention, treatment and recovery resources, Naloxone information, substance misuse prevention
resources and links to subject matter experts. We also offer training's in CPR, First Aid, Family Emergency Preparedness and Continuity of Operations Planning. We have developed a Community-wide Health Improvement Plan with area partners and would welcome involvement in our work groups such as Heart Disease/Stroke Prevention, Healthy Living and Falls Prevention.
The Seacoast Public Health Network became a program of Lamprey Health Care in July 2015, two years after the state merged the work of Substance Misuse Prevention networks with Public Health Emergency Preparedness networks. SPHN staff have 70+ years of combined experience in health education promotion, substance misuse prevention, and network development. We are one of 13 public health regions in the state.
Lend a Hand!
Our partner organizations throughout the region have the common goal of helping the community prevent, prepare for and respond to disasters, pressing public health needs and emergencies of all kinds. Volunteers are key to making our community a safer place to live. We look forward to working with you in this important community effort.
Our partners around the seacoast are made up of many organizations in the eastern Rockingham county of the state. There are many ways to become involved either by becoming an advisory board member, a workgroup member, or a volunteer! The following workgroups meet monthly: falls prevention in seniors, heart disease/stroke prevention, healthy living. Our emergency preparedness team meets bimonthly and our advisory board meets quarterly. Please consider joining one of these groups to help guide public health initiatives in the beautiful seacoast region of New Hampshire!
