This website is a companion to grant funded activities for a community approach to disrupting the pathway to violence in rural areas. Targeted violence is preventable. Concerning behaviors and potential warning signs in many instances are detected by friends, family, neighbors, teachers, co-workers and professionals; but not reported. This project will explore the barriers to reporting these signs in rural areas and pilot a community based, public health approach to overcome these barriers.
