Tenure-track Faculty Position: Workplace Mental Health
The Department of Mental Health of the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health is seeking an Associate or Full Professor level faculty member to lead a new Center for Mental Health in the Workplace. Prevention of mental illness and promotion of mental health in adulthood can have a major impact on the public’s health. A significant and often overlooked venue for development and dissemination of prevention and treatment in adulthood is the workplace. The vast majority of adults are employed, including the majority of adults with a mental illness. Partnership with employers and other corporate stakeholders can maximize prevention and promotion efforts by supporting dissemination of effective interventions to the working population.
The Department of Mental Health is the only department dedicated to mental health and situated in a school of public health. We bring together leading researchers across multiple disciplines joined by their passion for understanding, preventing, and treating mental health and substance use disorders and addressing related phenomena in the areas of aging, autism, adolescent health, child sexual abuse, disturbed sleep, environmental exposures, global mental health, and suicide. Faculty, students and community health leaders in Mental Health are dedicated to educating the next generation of public health workers and scientists about the importance of mental health, the specific skills needed to address public mental health issues and the integration of mental and physical health.
