Work and Psychiatric Disability in Canadian Disability Policy
Despite attention to the impact of mental health issues on employment, little attention has been directed to Canadian policy regarding psychiatric disabilities, and how these policies influence workplace practices. This paper reviews federal Canadian disability policy related to work, using the lens of mental illness, to answer the following three questions: (i) With regard to psychiatric disability, what are expected outcomes in the employment domain? (ii) How is psychiatric disability defined and described? (iii) How is the relationship between work and psychiatric disability developed? Notions about work and psychiatric disability found in federal policy documents, implications of these notions, and recommendations for future policy development are presented.
