Summary
If someone you know is living and working with schizophrenia, their life is often fraught with challenges and setbacks. Baldwin makes a comprehensive attempt to explain why, in spite of near-miraculous advances in medication and treatment, persons with mental illness fare worse than almost any other disadvantaged group in the labor market. She looks at societal factors that affect employment outcomes for persons with serious mental illness, and then examines workplace factors that affect employment outcomes, including employer mandates in the Americans with Disabilities Act. Baldwin also outlines a set of policy recommendations designed to improve employment outcomes for this population
Summary
Despite major advances in medication and treatment, persons with serious mental illness have substantially worse employment outcomes than other disadvantaged groups. This book explains the factors that impact the employment of those with mental illnesses and provides guidance for overcoming obstacles, from both employer and employee perspectives
