“Recently I attended and spoke at the Social Determinants of Urban Mental Health conference hosted by the Adler School of Professional Psychology. Lynn Todman, the Executive Director of Adler’s Institute on Social Exclusion and the conference’s organizer, has been doing groundbreaking work on the link between public policies and the mental health of urban communities, including the Institute’s Mental Health Impact Assessment, which was developed in part through support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.”

Jane Lowe, Team Director for the Vulnerable Populations Portfolio at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, was among the speakers at this important conference that took place Sept. 19-20 in Chicago. In this blog post, she shares her perspective on public policies’ impact on the urban populations’ mental health and well-being.
