About This Course:
Job accommodations can be vital for the successful employment of individuals with mental health impairments. Knowing how, when and why it might be necessary to disclose a disability is the first and often most difficult part of the accommodation process.

This webinar will provide information on the disclosure of mental health impairments in the workplace, the limitations associated with these impairments, and the accommodations that might be needed.
