The Ft. Lauderdale Psychology class led by Professor Angela Eniola,M.S. is doing a service learning project all year long that benefits South Florida Wellness Network. The class donated personal care packages to the agency. South Florida Wellness Network (SFWN) is a recovery focused support network run and driven by youth, adult and family peers. We are a community of individuals who have been strengthened by our lived experience with behavioral, emotional, mental health, trauma, and/or substance abuse. Our shared experience unites and empowers us to help others discover their unique path to recovery.
South Florida Wellness Network provides training in programs proven to promote recovery and wellness such as Whole Health Action Management (WHAM), Mental Health First Aid for Youth and Adults, and Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP). We also work directly with the peer-support community to provide training to those wishing to become Certified Recovery Peer Specialists (Adult, Family and/or Veteran) so they may volunteer or become employed as Peer Specialist to serve others in their community. SFWN also manages and operates the Federation of Families Broward County Chapter and are in the process of bringing Youth M.O.V.E. (Motivating Others Through Voices of Experience) to Broward County.
