Employment and Mental Illness

http://psychcentral.com/newsletter/issue001/employment.htm

It's often a vicious circle. Having mental or emotional problems can make it harder to get a job, or to get the job that you want. Being unemployed or settling for a job that is unsatisfying to you doesn't do your mental health any favors either. The problem is quite serious and breaking the cycle can be difficult. Many homeless people have mental health issues, without which perhaps they would have jobs and access to housing, but not having an address contributes further, and makes it that much harder to get a job. Sometimes one thing just seems to build on top of another, making it harder to see solutions to anything. Yet there are also people who have mental and emotional struggles, yet they have good jobs. Sometimes they may struggle with work-related issues also, but they can serve as an inspiration and example to others.
