The vision of the Carroll County Coalition of Public Health (C3PH) is that all Carroll County residents will enjoy good health, a safe environment, and opportunities to succeed and thrive at all phases of life through proactive, coordinated and comprehensive delivery of essential health services. To realize this vision, C3PH will focus public attention on six key public health priorities that impact residents across the lifespan, engage our communities in evidence-informed solutions and set clear benchmarks by which we will measure our collective impact.
C3PH Service Area: The Carroll County Coalition for Public Health (C3PH) region is composed of the following communities: Albany, Bartlett, Brookfield, Chatham, Conway, Eaton, Effingham, Freedom, Hart’s Location, Hale’s Location, Jackson, Madison, Moultonborough, Ossipee, Sandwich, Tamworth, Tuftonboro, Wakefield, and Wolfeboro.
Carroll County Promise 2020: Community Health Improvement Plan Priorities: C3PH, with the help of the Public Health Advisory Council, identifies regional public health priorities based on assessments of community health and encourages the development of evidence-based programs, practices, and policies so as to advance the coordination of services among community partners and promotion of community engagement on public health issues. C3PH welcomes volunteers to participate in the following CHIP priorities:
Early Childhood and Early Parenting Support: Provide for the optimal development of children and families, ensuring all children enter kindergarten healthy and ready to learn and thrive.
Access to Comprehensive Behavioral Health Services: Improve access to a comprehensive, coordinated continuum of behavioral health services.
Substance Misuse and Addiction: Prevent and reduce substance misuse (including alcohol, marijuana, and prescription drugs) among all generations.
Chronic Disease: Reduce disease incidence and prevalence in regards to chronic health conditions such as obesity cancer, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and asthma.
Aging with Connection and Purpose: Improve the health of older residents of our communities by enhancing connection and purpose through collaboration with community partners to address multiple social determinants of health including nutrition, transportation, housing, home healthcare, and community engagement.
Public Health Emergency Preparedness Across the Life Span: Increase community preparedness and individual preparedness of residents and ensure that all residents have access to mental health services if they seek sheltering services.
