2017 Summer Institute




The Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion invites you to join us on campus this summer, July 24th & 25th, in Philadelphia to discuss the state-of-the-science research related to individuals with mental illnesses and community inclusion. More information is on our institute website here.

If you are looking to transform your programs to ones that focus on helping service recipients “live like everyone else,” this is the summer institute for you!


Registration has officially opened! Based on the popularity of our previous conferences, spaces fill up quickly! Conference registration is $50. Reserve your space early here. 

The Collaborative’s 2017 Summer Institute, with support from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research, draws on more than a dozen years of sound research and partnerships with mental health policy-makers, consumers, family, program managers, and direct service practitioners.  Participants will have access to current research findings and their implications for policy, programs, and practice.


There is still time to submit a proposal! The 2017 Summer Institute will provide opportunities for participants to share their own research and their policy, program and practice innovations as part of panel discussions during the two-day Institute. Panelists will share research findings  and effective strategies that further the fundamentals of community inclusion articulated in “Well Together – A Blueprint for Community Inclusion.”  You can submit your proposal to become part of a panel by clicking here.
