This 19-minute videotape features a diverse group of over 25 employers, job developers, and employees with psychiatric disabilities. Through personal interviews, they speak of their experiences and offer sensitive and practical suggestions to help others achieve success joining or rejoining the workforce.
Invisible Workforce presents a hopeful vision of recovery that will inspire employers, mental health professionals, educators, consumers and family members. This tape is also valuable for job developers and placement coordinators meeting with prospective employers.
The first in a series on employment, this video is intended to stimulate dynamic and productive discussions about the major issues of the workplace for people with psychiatric disabilities. (MIEP)
