More About Texas Prevention Training

Who We Are

Community Advocacy Research & Evaluation Consulting Group (CARECG) administers the new Texas Prevention Training Services contract from Texas Health and Human Services Commission. We are committed to incorporating continous quality improvements and adult learning best practices into the Texas Prevention Training (TPT) initiative. We aim to bring our core values to work, every day: Accountability, Community, Intentionality, Quality, Ownership and Social Justice. For more information about us, visit carecg.com.

What We Do

TPT brokers, coordinates, develops, and delivers training for substance (mis)use prevention providers in Texas. This includes: Core certification prevention training (e.g., Ethics in Prevention); Youth prevention curriculum trainings (e.g., Positive Action); Prevention competency trainings (e.g., Youth Mental Health First Aid); Annual Prevention Providers Meeting in June and Annual Prevention Directors Meeting in November; and the TPT scholarship program to allow students/interns/volunteers to attend prevention trainings.

Why We're Here

CARECG and our designated TPT staff members are committed to supporting and enhancing the capacity of the Texas substance use prevention workforce. Through partnerships with certified trainers, established curriculum developers, local subject matter experts, and Prevention Resource Centers, we aim to provide high quality training services for prevention providers across the state.

When to Expect Services

We are aware that there are many urgent training needs across the system. The TPT team is working closely with HHSC to plan the first of many trainings, where scheduling prevention curriculum training is our initial focus in these early months. Once any training is scheduled, we will send out its registration information along with further details on requesting specific training through our website.
