Job Accommodation Network (JAN)

JAN's Website can be very helpful to job seekers with mental health impairments providing information and resources that address issues such as disclosure of a disability; finding the right job; examples of potential accommodations; ADA guidance; and a wide variety of other employment issues. The portal designated for "Job Seekers" under "For Individuals" on the JAN Home Page is a good starting point.
