A Practical Guide for People With Mental Health Conditions Who Want to Work

Although a staggering number of individuals with mental health conditions do not work, competitive employment remains a vibrant goal for most, and the truth is that most people with mental health conditions are able to work successfully if they receive the supports they need. The Temple University Collaborative is proud to present “A Practical Guide for People With Mental Health Conditions Who Want to Work,” designed for people with mental health conditions who want to return to successful careers. In fifteen brief and beautifully illustrated chapters, the Guide offers encouragement and vital information on the importance of work, the availability of rehabilitation programs, the ins and outs of the Social Security Administration’s work incentives, the challenges of starting a new job and grappling with disclosure, and strategies for long-term success at work – and more. Designed for those with mental health conditions to use on their own or as part of a return-to-work group in community mental health centers, psychiatric rehabilitation programs, or peer-run agencies, the Guide focuses on helping people to achieve economic self-sufficiency.
