Julianne Hill (U.S.) is an award-winning journalist based in Chicago who has worked in television, radio and print. Her career has been shaped by a fascination with mental health and brain development, earning a host of honors including a Rosalynn Carter Fellowship, a National Press Foundation Fellowship and several Peter Lisagor Awards from the Chicago Headline Club. Her in-depth investigation into New Hampshire’s policy of sending mental health patients who have committed no crimes to the state prison prompted the governor to change the state budget to build a new hospital. Currently, she is a legal affairs writer with the ABA Journal, the publication of the American Bar Association distributed to 500,000 lawyers, and is part of its team developing the “Children and the Law” series.
