Job accommodations can be vital for the successful employment of individuals with mental health impairments.  Knowing how, when, and why it might be necessary to disclose a disability is the first and often most difficult part of the accommodation process. 

This session will provide information on

  • the disclosure of mental health impairments in the workplace,
  • the limitations associated with these impairments,
  • and the accommodations that might be needed. 

Real-life accommodation situations and solutions will be interspersed throughout the session. A question-and-answer session will be included at the end.
