Hi, my name is Leif E. Greenz and I struggle with chronic unemployment because of my complex PTSD.
Consider becoming a Patron to keep this channel running!
Today is Toolbox Tuesday, but the truth is that I don’t have many solutions for the problem of unemployment amongst people with psych diagnoses. Instead, we’ll talk about the factors that can complicate employment when you’re struggling with mental health and ways in which employers have failed us.
This was a hard video for me to make, as it’s a very sensitive and shameful topic that I’ve been dealing with for over a decade. Please feel free to share your own experiences with employment (or lack thereof) in the comments.
Always remember that you’re not alone. Upwards of 80% of “mentally ill” people are unemployed. That’s a huge problem! Let’s sit down and chat about why and how this happens.
