Peter Antal, Ph.D. joined the Institute on Disability in 2004 with a focus on providing a diverse range of evaluation and research support to the organization. Current areas of focus include: supporting improvements in the fields of mental health, genetics, leadership, staff competencies, early care and education, youth development, and transportation. Since 2007, he has led the implementation of New Hampshire's public mental health survey, resulting in heightened public awareness of mental health issues, improvements in strategic planning efforts among state and center staff, improved oversight of center contracts, and changes in how some services are offered. Across his projects, Dr. Antal adopts a collaborative approach which brings together the perspectives of multiple stakeholders (both organizations and individuals) to share ideas, develop consensus, and to collaborate resources to ensure that the mission and objectives of each endeavor are met to the fullest extent possible.
