New MSER w/ Dr. Uma Chandrika Millner (May 16th, 2024) – Thriving at Work While Living with Mental Illness

April 24, 2024

The Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation is pleased to present “Making Sense of Employment Research”, a webinar series designed to discuss a recent published research study, in a clear and relevant way, even for those who know little or nothing about research.

This interactive webinar will highlight the conditions necessary for thriving at work among individuals living in challenging mental health situations. We will emphasize fairness as the foundation to thriving and the importance of (re)storying multiple perspectives, centering decent work as a basic human right, and identifying the psychological, social, and structural systems necessary for thriving. We will highlight the specific needs of Black, Indigenous, and Other People of Color (BIPOC) and Transgender individuals with lived experience.

Dr. Uma Chandrika Millner (she/her) is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and Applied Therapies at Lesley University and part-time faculty at Boston College. Prior to Lesley, she worked as a Research Scientist at Boston University. Her overall professional approach is grounded in anti-colonial frameworks and intersectionality. Dr. Millner’s research focuses on work and wellness for marginalized and minoritized communities including individuals with psychiatric disabilities and Asian Americans. Dr. Millner has conducted numerous research projects involving qualitative and quantitative methodologies focused on community integration of adults with psychiatric disabilities.
