What do I tell a potential employer about my mental illness?

www.bu.edu/cpr/jobschool
This Boston University website has a number of articles on many different aspects of working when a person has had a mental illness. It discusses issues such as reasonable accommodation and the laws requiring it, when and how to disclose information about a mental illness and dealing with the challenges that people encounter at work.

Canadian consumers of mental health services share their views on disclosing a mental illness at: http://www.cmha.ca/data/1/rec_docs/439_getting_a_job.pdf
