Juli Leber, MSW

Mental Health Fellow

Juli comes to Healthy Minds with experience in direct service, advocacy, and research. Her passion for mental health is broad, and she has a particular interest in expanding access and equity of care for historically marginalized groups, as well as creating a more trauma-informed mental health crisis response system for those most in need.

Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Juli received her bachelor’s in psychology from Boston University and her master’s in social work from the University of Chicago’s Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice. Her previous experience includes working with Thresholds as a member of its Homeless Outreach Program on the southwest side of Chicago and with the National Alliance on Mental Illness’ Chicago affiliate, where she focused on workplace wellness best practices. Additionally, Juli co-founded and chaired her university’s mental health committee within their student government, which is still active on campus today, and received the 2017/2018 Alma Baker Campbell award for her work on supporting others in need on campus.
