Our Vision

Florida will be a state where every child is born substance free and lives in a family that promotes healthy growth and development

Florida PSEP Method of Work

  • Action Plan developed at first meeting in October 2011 and revised based on input from CityMatch in May 2012

  • Leadership responsibilities divided between two co-leads (facilitate/communicate with team

    & minutes)

  • The team has met monthly to work on the established strategies in the plan.

  • We collaborate with 190 colleagues statewide in 9 MOD workgroups to work on various aspects related to the effects of substance exposure during pregnancy

  • Multiple Florida communities have local SEN workgroups

  • PSEP resources are shared statewide
