The research study: We are exploring ways to implement person-centered care in substance use treatment and mental health treatment. We are looking for peer support specialists and clients/consumers associated with the South Florida Behavioral Health Network. Information from this study will be used to help researchers, health care providers, and policy makers improve person-centered care. We can’t do this without your help!


Who can participate?

  • Anyone who speaks English, Spanish, or Creole

  • Anyone who is over the age of 18

  • Anyone who is a peer support specialist or client/consumer associated with the South Florida Behavioral Health Network


What will you do? You will participate in a 45 minute to 1-hour long phone call where you will discuss your preferences regarding person-centered care and your experiences with person-centered care. Interviews will be audio recorded but your personal data will remain confidential.

Compensation: You will receive a $50 gift card for completing the interview.
