Government program supports Employment for people with bipolar disorder and other disabilities

During the NAMI 2009 conference we met with representatives of the Social Security Adminstration's Ticket to Work program which provides financial incentives for small businesses to employ people with disabilities. This program has been retooled recently with the objective of making it easier and more lucrative for businesses to hire people who suffer from bipolar disorder, depression and other Mental Illnesses.

Earlier today, we received a note from this program with a schedule of events in 15 states during November. For more information or to sign up for one of these program you can access Ticket to Work.

If you own a small business or are in a situation where you might qualify to work in a small business, you might review this program. The program administrators are actively working to add new businesses and get more people with disabilities back to work.

Also available is a Ticket to Work powerpoint document NAMI Workshop Slides.ppt that offers a more comphrensive overview of this progam. Be forewarned, this is 65 slide document.
