Stress Prevents Individuals with Mental Illness from Working

Home - Tips - Stress Prevents Individuals with Mental Illness from Working

Research shows that people with a mental illness have functional limitations that may prevent them from working.

There are four common limitations which I listed below with some solutions:

  1. Maintaining work stamina/pace

    • working 3 hours without breaks
    • standing for long periods
    • taking scheduled breaks
    • completing tasks in allotted times
    • managing time
  2. Learning the job

    • remembering the routine
    • following instructions
    • learning new tasks
  3. Managing symptoms/Tolerating stress

    • relaxing, recognizing stressors
    • managing negative feelings
    • managing internal distractions
  4. Interacting with others

    • interviewing for the job
    • describing strengths and weaknesses
    • clarifying instructions
    • asking for help
    • starting conversations with coworkers
