Training and Development: Summer Institute
The Delaware Health and Social Services' Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health presents a week-long conference, the Summer Institute, annually during the last week of July. The Institute attracts internationally and nationally renowned faculty to present on new evidence-based treatment approaches and emerging best practices in behavioral health. Participants in the Institute engage with professional colleagues and interested others in learning new techniques and honing the skills that they use every day.
Participation in the Institute is not limited to clinical staff; individuals in recovery, family members, support systems, other state agencies, and any interested in topics presented are encouraged to attend. We strongly feel that workshops comprised of participants with diverse backgrounds, opinions and experiences strengthen learning and promote networking opportunities.
Annual sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities exist. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
