Job Accommodations for Persons with Mental Health Conditions

Date: Thursday, June 20, 2013
Description: 2:00 P.M - 3:00 P.M ET - What we learned from research and from JAN’s technical assistance - free webinar

This is a webinar presented by Boston University Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation in conjunction with the Job Accommodation Network (JAN). Job accommodations are any change in the work environment or in the way things are customarily done in order to remove barriers for employees with disabilities.


This webinar will review the main categories of accommodations that have been typically utilized by persons with mental health conditions to improve employ-ment results. This webinar will combine the results of a summary of quantitative and qualitative research studies and several decades of technical assistance by the two national centers (BU and JAN). Presenters will discuss promising practices revealed in the studies and emerging trends of interest to employers.
