MHCC study finds accommodating aspiring workers is a win-win for employers and employees

Aspiring workers are people who have been overlooked by the workplace or sidelined due to episodic or persistent illness. The study focused on aspiring workers struggling to remain in the workplace and in need of accommodation to stay employed. Unemployment among people living with severe mental illness hovers between 70 and 90 per cent.
