Mental Health


The U.S. Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy offers resources to help employers foster a mental health-friendly work culture & ensure that disability-related policies & practices consider the needs of people with mental health conditions.


The most recent JAN Newsletter focuses on #accommodating employees with substance use disorders & adopting related policies & practices to help support employees. It features the @USDOL Recovery-Ready Workplace Toolkit.

JAN offers individualized consultation regarding #accommodation and #ADA topics, but our A to Z Lists are a great place to find information designed to help employers and individuals determine effective accommodations and comply with the ADA.
