He understands what it takes to create mindset shifts and truly connect with clients, colleagues, and your own goals.

Travis Lloyd’s story started as a youth when receiving services from child welfare and mental health agencies, but it took a drastic turn when he obtained a bachelor’s of science and began working in those same systems as a Registered Nurse. This dual perspective allowed him to view these services from a lens that was far beyond his education. After serving as a psychiatric nurse, ER nurse, and Mental Health Mobile Crisis Worker, this perspective opened doors to advocate for organizational change at local, state, and national levels.
This is a message that all of you in child welfare and the mental health system need to hear! -Pete Tunseth, Director of Children & Families Training at University of North Dakota
