Public Awareness

The Safe Sleep Coalition was initiated by the Missouri Department of Social Services (DSS), Children’s Division (CD) in winter 2016 to exclusively focus on safe sleep for infants. The primary goal of the Coalition is to substantially reduce and eliminate injuries and deaths as a result of unsafe sleep environments and practices in Missouri through increased education, awareness, practice and training. Public awareness about safe sleep practices is key to increased safe sleep education of the general public.
