The Bill Bailey Preventionist of the Year Award

In honor of the integrity and growth Bill Bailey brought to Indiana Prevention, the Division of Mental Health & Addiction

Bill Bailey was a leader in Prevention in Indiana. He served for over two decades as the Director of the Indiana Prevention Resource Center (now Prevention Insights). He was instrumental in moving Indiana’s prevention system towards an evidence-based system. He had this vision early and Indiana was one of the first states in the US to move toward prevention efforts based on data of what works. This legacy continues today with the many communities using the Strategic Prevention Framework to assess and identify the prevention needs of their communities.
