Work Accommodation and Retention in Mental Health Izabela Z. Schultz and E. Sally Rogers, Editors Mental illness has long been recognized as a cause of unemployment and decreased job productivity. More recently, a myriad of social, legal, and demographic factors have brought more people with mental health impairments into the workplace, resulting in considerable practical questions for employers, rehabilitation specialists, and other professionals, particularly on accommodation and retention issues. Work Accommodation and Retention in Mental Health occupies a unique place in the mental health and vocational rehabilitation literature by assembling a scattered and fragmented knowledge base into an evidences-informed sourcebook and how-to guide. With its in-depth background on conceptual and legal issues, extensive discussion of the effects of psychological conditions on work outcomes, and equal emphasis on clinical and occupational interventions, this book is accessible to readers across a wide range of disciplines seeking effective job retention and accommodations strategies in mental health. Included in the this coverage: • A conceptual framework for job accommodations in mental health. • The relationship between psychological disorders and work performances. • Employment interventions for mental health disorders. • Barriers and facilitators to job accommodations. • Evidence-based best practices. • Future discretions for improving work outcomes for those with mental illnesses. Work Accommodation and Retention in Mental Health will solve a multidisciplinary readership in occupational medicines, psychiatry, clinical rehabilitation, industrial/organizational, and neuropsychology; vocational rehabilitation counseling; occupational therapy; disability management; and human resources management.
