Work as a Social Determinant of Mental Health
Tony LaMontagne is Professor of Work, Health and Wellbeing at Deakin University, Australia. Professor LaMontagne’s career has been dedicated to developing the scientific and public understanding of work as a social determinant of health, and translating this research into policy and practice to improve workplace and worker health. Specific areas of interest include workplace mental health, improving job quality and psychosocial working conditions, and evaluating policy interventions. His research and publications have influenced policy & practice in workplace health both nationally and internationally, including OH&S authorities, Beyond Blue, the (Australian) National Mental Health Commission, the US Occupational Safety & Health Administration, and the World Health Organization. Before completing his doctoral degree at Harvard University, Tony earned M.Ed. and B.S. degrees in Education at University of Massachusetts Amherst. CPH-NEW was excited to welcome him back to UMass Lowell for this talk on Doctor LaMontagne’s work relating the impacts of work on physical health, mental health and well-being.
