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.
