PURPOSE: Homelessness is associated with poor health outcomes and heightened risk of premature mortality. Permanent supportive housing (PSH) is a key solution for ending homelessness, but there is insufficient evidence of a relationship between PSH and improvements in physical health. Self-rated health-a consistent predictor of mortality-is a meaningful approach to understanding health improvements in PSH. DESIGN: Longitudinal, observational design with interviews at baseline, 3-months, 6-months, and 12-months (with 91% retention at 12-months)...

Tribalism in America and our polarized body politic has, sadly, become part of our daily digest. Is it possible that place-based discrimination will be shown to be an even more powerful impediment to our collective well-being than other formidable health influencers like race or income? If so, how would such a social diagnosis inform strategic planning in health promotion? Waddell and Reed wrote about "possible causal pathways" that show the interaction effects, both positive and negative, between work, health, and well-being...

Psychological safety at work means that you can be yourself at work and speak up with a dissenting opinion without fear of reprisals. I'm lucky to have worked more often than not in cultures predominantly defined by respect and with colleagues who not only make me feel safe but who also routinely inspire me to bring my best self to the office. Can the same be said for most workplaces in America? If you study this question, you will find that all roads lead to the extraordinary scholarship of Harvard Business School's Amy Edmondson...

This article describes the development of communication products, including innovative media, about this public health risk, and shares lessons learned to inform public health practice...
