National Core Competencies Review and Revisions Project

In 2012, the National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health (NFFCMH) launched the national certification examination for Parent/Family Peer Support Providers (PSP). As the field of peer support has matured, it is incumbent upon us to revise the examination questions and protocol to incorporate what we have learned and to reflect the evolution of the field. Our goal is to review and update, where necessary, the National Certified Parent Support Provider (CPSP) competencies and, ultimately, the national certification exam. 

Please find important reference and competency revision project materials in the gallery below. Final public comments are welcome until December 16, 2019. You may submit those below. We encourage you to review the documents included on this page in advance.
