The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health/The Luv u Project Center for Mental Health in the Workplace
We are extremely proud to announce the establishment of The Johns Hopkins
Bloomberg School of Public Health/The Luv u Project Center for Mental Health in
the Workplace. This game-changing initiative will provide the country’s first academic
home for workplace mental health research and development. It will be a collaboration
with businesses, professional organizations, health care providers, and government
Our collaboration with the leaders of the JHSPH have been evolving for the past several
years, beginning with our “Mental Health in the Workplace: A Public Health Summit” and
our establishment of an Advisory Council in the fall of 2016. Then, this past April, a
peer-reviewed manuscript of our work was published in the prestigious Journal of
Occupational and Environmental Medicine. This, too, was a collaborative effort, coauthored by all of the Advisory Council members.
We were fortunate that we were invited to present our work at the National Institutes of
Health and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, among others.
Our work with the JHSPH can be credited to the school’s bright and passionate leaders.
We are grateful to many, but we could never have reached this milestone without the
vision and commitment of Daniele (Dani) Fallin, PhD, chair of the Department of Mental
Health at JHSPH and Ron Goetzel, PhD, director of the Institute for Health and
Productivity at JHSPH.
