Are there any strategies that might help me succeed at work?

This page of a website from Boston University discusses some common ways that a mental illness can interfere with work and some strategies to overcome those impediments. www.bu.edu/cpr/jobschool/functemp.htm

The Canadian Mental Health Association has produced two books on strategies for recovery and success at work. They present some practical approaches to dealing with general job challenges and with specific situations such as disclosing information about having a mental illness. The 2 books are "Bouncing Back: How Workplace Resiliency Can Work for You" and "Hangin' in There: Job Retention by Persons with a Psychiatric Disability". The books can be downloaded for free at:
