Our colleague Dr. Joy Ippolito is out with a Medium.com blog highlighting the importance of talking about mental health during a time like this.

Joy is a Social Impact Investment Director focusing on healthy youth development here at the Institute. Prior to joining American Family Insurance, she was the first Anti-Human Trafficking Coordinator for the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families and has nearly two decades of experience as a former clinical social worker and academic researcher at Harvard and the University of Chicago.

We spoke with her about what she wanted to accomplish with the blog that chronicles her personal and professional connection to mental health.
