An intellectual property lawyer who struggles with anxiety, depression and

related issues. A Connecticut police officer with military-service-connected

post-traumatic stress disorder. A New York City bus operator with delusional

disorder and schizophrenia.

 

What do these workers have in common? Well, in addition to being among the40

million-plus U.S. citizens who experienced mental illness in the past year,

they're also part of a growing number of employees who are speaking out and

ultimately suing when they feel mistreated on the job for having or being

viewed as having a mental disability.
