Ever wonder what researchers are finding out about employment for people with mental illnesses/mental health conditions? 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. “Benefits and Challenges of Employment for Individuals Diagnosed with Mental Illness: Qualitative Findings and Ongoing Research” During this Webinar, Dr. Elliott will present qualitative findings from interviews she conducted with working professionals who self-identified as having mental illness. The results will be drawn primarily from this publication, co-authored with Jordan Reuter. The presentation will highlight benefits and challenges people reported about being employed, and about having mental illness on the job. It will also explore policy implications of the findings and a preview of her ongoing related research.
