Thinking About Work


Who can help me explore what I would like and not like in a workplace?

There are many different options for you if you want to get support to figure out what your preferences are.  The roles of Vocational Rehabilitation, Supported Employment, Mental Health, and America’s Job Centers staff are explored here.

Also, you should consider listening to peer supporters who would share their experiences of recovery. Some peer specialists may get help with how to think about work, such as with training in Vocational Peer Support.  Others may be willing to talk it through and share their experiences.

Other supports may be helpful to you. You may have friends, family, or others who know you and what you like to do. Talk with them about what they know about you, and get encouragement from them to try out different work experiences.
