The pre-institute is an online 12 hour workshop that opens 6 weeks in advance of the in-person institute. The pre-institute will help orient you to the topic of rural issues in mental health and developmental disabilities and familiarize you to the ACTraining framework. You will work on reconnecting with your values and making more workable action.
The MHDD Leadership Institute is a five-day, in-person seminar that takes place at Utah State University in May of 2020. You will engage with experts in the field of MHDD and obtain cutting edge information that can be applied in rural communities to build capacity for the mental health aspects of individuals with developmental disabilities.
The post-institute is a cohort action group facilitated via video conferencing for three months following the leadership institute. Cohort members will be provided a platform to help troubleshoot their action plans, gain support from others across the country, and find new ways to continue developing leaders and building capacity at their respective agencies.
