PSCFL has been contracted by Florida’s Department of Children and Families (DCF), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Office, to provide a variety of peer services in Florida, including, but not limited to, the development of new training curriculums and the coordination of peer training activities. We have been tasked to develop the following training curriculums: Facilitator Development Training, Peer Supervisory Training, and CRPS-Youth Training.

We are happy to invite subject matter experts (SMEs) and stakeholders to be part of a curriculum workgroup and have the opportunity to review and provide input on one or any of the following curriculums:
