About UP Coalition Network

We're a group of the 14 Communities That Care (CTC) coalitions serving the UP. CTC is evidence-based to help lower rates of youth problem behaviors, including substance use, violence, delinquency, school drop out, teen pregnancy, and depression. Our goal is simple: Create communities in the Upper Peninsula where youth thrive. 


Our Current Campaigns

Stop Stigma in the 906


Stigma is a huge barrier that can keep youth and adults from reaching out when they're struggling with mental health or substance use.

Support Cards for Parents


In partnership with Dial Help, we created folded business cards to help parents support their tweens and teens, including resources.

QPR Training


With support from the Marquette County Health Department and volunteers in each county, we are offering FREE Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) suicide prevention training to any group that requests it. The only cost is training booklets, which are $3 each. Trainings are one hour long, and appropriate for youth and adults. Contact us to schedule.
