While there are a multitude of reasons, reasonable accommodations/adjustments for individuals with disabilities and concerns from managers about appropriate interaction with and performance management of, individuals experiencing mental illness, rise to the top.

This comprehensive training provides an understanding of how Mental Illness may affect a person's

  • Memory

  • Ways in which employers can effectively engage candidates and employees with these functional limitations and still benefit from their talent.
