No Shame, No Stigma - Mental Health in the Workplace

• No Shame, No Stigma – Ensure that workers with disabilities receive information about free mental health supports during this crisis. In a time of crisis, isolation and sickness, it is no wonder that millions more Americans are reporting mental health conditions. From increasing rates of depression to widespread symptoms of chronic stress, Americans' mental health is being strained like never before. As such, workforce programs should, as part of the intake process, ensure that jobseekers receive resources and information about mental health supports in the community and understand how to ask for mental health accommodation in the workplace.
