Event Description

Overview

The principles prohibiting discrimination in the workplace under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other applicable laws originated with both physical and psychiatric disabilities in mind; however, employers tend to focus more on the physical disabilities. According to a 2013 study by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, an estimated 61.5 million Americans have experienced a mental health impairment in a given year. That number, if anything, continues to rise.

Why you should Attend

  • Determining when a person with a psychiatric disability is "qualified" for a job
