Current Public-Health Related Activities

As a clinical community psychologist, I am committed to how contextual factors contribute to our health and the interventions we can do to improve the health status of communities. Our department is increasingly taking a public health approach to behavioral health. My role is in the conceptual development of this work to drive system change as well as overseeing large-scale public health initiatives, including our work with the Mural Arts Program and the implementation of Mental Health First Aid and behavioral health screenings.
