Prevention Mindset Institute: Embracing Prevention Across Systems

Summary Report

What does it take to shift mindsets across multiple, interconnected systems? Can mindsets be shifted within decades-old child-welfare systems—systems that wield enormous reach and power? What would motivate change? The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) has promoted the reorientation of child welfare agencies toward a prevention mindset, and the Prevention Mindset Institute (PMI) was formed to assist states in making such a change. In 2020, six states (Alabama, California, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas, and Wyoming) embarked on furthering their systems change efforts through the PMI.
