Unison Health’s ProjectPROM Gives Area High School Chance to Win $1,000 for After-Prom

For high school students, prom is a night they’ll never forget. Unison Health wants to make it a night they’ll never regret as well. That’s why Unison Health is proud to present ProjectPROM, in which one Lucas County school will win $1,000 for their after-prom celebration. This collaboration with BCSN/BCAN, aimed at promoting a safe and healthy prom season, was made possible through a grant from the Lucas County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board.

Beginning February 11, 2019, BCSN/BCAN on-air personalities Jordan Tomase and Jessica Furnas are visiting Lucas County High Schools, interviewing them about the importance of staying drug- and alcohol-free on prom night. In addition, students are encouraged to submit their own 30-second videos by posting them to Twitter and tagging Unison Health, BCSN, and BCAN. The winning video will receive $1,000 for their school’s after-prom, and all participants will be eligible to win individual prizes as well.

By sponsoring ProjectPROM, Unison Health aims to call attention to the need for safe, sober prom night events. According to Unison Health President and CEO Jeff De Lay, “About 40 percent of high-school students say they’re planning to use drugs or alcohol on prom night, and 75 percent say they believe they’ll be pressured to use. By creating after-prom events that students are excited about, we can see a real reduction in those numbers — and that can make a real difference as we seek to prevent substance use disorders from affecting the lives of young people here in Lucas County and Northwest Ohio.” For more information on ProjectPROM, please visit: https://bcsnnation.com/prom/.

Unison Health has been caring for the people of this region for nearly fifty years, providing behavioral health care and treatment for substance use disorders. We are dedicated to providing effective, accessible and affordable services. Unison Health accepts Ohio Medicaid and most private insurances. mFor more information about Unison Health please visit www.unisonhealth.org.
