Dr. Ty Aller was a recent guest on the MHDD Crossroads Podcast (listen to the full interview here and find our other episodes). In our conversation, Dr. Aller discussed how he got involved in the mental health field, his experiences with this work, and a current project he has been developing at the MHDD National Training Center (the MHDD Leadership Institute). Registration for this exclusive leadership development training is now open.

The MHDD Leadership Institute, a 5-day intensive leadership development retreat, was created with the intent to inspire, motivate, and guide professionals to meaningful action by identifying and
committing to values. By using components of ACTraining, those that attend the institute will walk away feeling reinvigorated to continue doing their work and finding new ways to build capacity around supporting the mental health aspects of individuals with developmental disabilities.

The institute is intended for professionals working with individuals with developmental disabilities and/or in the mental health field who want to build capacity for services supporting the mental health of individuals with developmental disabilities. By attending the institute, you will receive not only cutting-edge information that helps solve existing problems in the field, but you will also develop connections with a national cohort of like-minded individuals and agencies for future
partnerships and projects.

The MHDD Leadership Institute will take place May 11th– 15th, 2020. Utah State University is
located in Logan, Utah. The cost of the conference is $1500 (inclusive of conference registration, most meals, and single-occupancy lodging in a hotel).

Registration for this event is open now and closes on February 28th – be sure to reserve your place at this event!
