She is currently employed on MENTUPP (www.mentuppproject.eu), which is funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme, and that primarily aims to improve mental health in the workplace by developing, implementing and evaluating a multilevel intervention targeting mental health difficulties in Small and Medium Enterprises in the construction, health and ICT sectors.
