"Working Assets: A Career Guide for Peers" is a groundbreaking handbook on finding and succeeding at a job with a mental illness. Christina Bruni, M.S., shares her own experience and extensive resources to give peers the confidence, self-compassion, and insider insight to get a job using tactics that not many non-disabled individuals are aware of.
The information in Working Assets is candid, competitive, and allows the reader to take control of the process using tactics that not a lot of non-disabled individuals are aware of. While those without a mental illness would benefit from reading the book the guide is geared towards a target market of peers with mental health issues often overlooked in mainstream media. Inside Working Assets, you will find: • Specific job-hunting strategies for people living with mental illnesses. • Detailed insight on creating a resume, interviewing, and navigating the workplace once hired. • Advice on requesting a reasonable accommodation under the ADA Act if needed. • Peer-endorsed tactics for managing your mental health on the job. • Thoughts on achieving a fulfilled life using your hard-earned cash. From volunteer work to office jobs and non-traditional careers Working Assets covers the bases. A spectrum of options exists for finding the work that is the right fit for you.
