Former Managing Editor, Content and Programs
Julianne Hill is a Chicago-based reporter and producer focused on mental health. Her award-winning work has appeared in outlets including NPR’s “This American Life” and “Morning Edition,” Chicago Public Radio, PBS and ABA Journal.
Hill was a 2006 Rosalynn Carter Fellow in mental health journalism and a National Press Foundation Fellow for reporting on HIV-AIDS. Her award-winning 2019 investigation into New Hampshire’s policy of sending mental health patients who have not committed crimes to state prison prompted the governor to change the state budget to build a new psychiatric hospital.
She launched one of the first college-level courses in reporting on mental health in the US at Loyola University Chicago, and has taught at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Ohio University and the University of Chicago.
