Able-Minded: Return to Work and Accommodations for Workers on Disability Leave for Mental Disorders
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe 2010 report brings the most current and empirically validated perspectives to this very important issue. Mental health disability is the fastest growing health-related disability in Canada, and has claimed this title for over 20 years. These cases can be complex but typically respond well to appropriate treatment, coordinated stakeholder actions, and employer and organization support. Our hope is that this report will assist employers by illuminating the many advances in this area in recent years, and help organizations to be proactive and/or respond effectively when the need arises.
