PA Care Partnership and the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) have partnered with OCYF to add to the existing PA Care Partnership contract with Lakeside Global. As a result, Lakeside Global has added funds to allow free trauma training for anyone working in or with child welfare in Pennsylvania through September 30, 2023.
OCYF was able to add 1.2 million dollars using previously awarded incentive funds earned by the OCYF Adoption Team in Pennsylvania. All questions relating to the training should be directed to Beth Hall at [email protected].
Additionally, you will find the training course descriptions in the attached flyer.
