Mental Health Impairments and the ADA


ADA accommodation duties apply to mental disabilities as well as physical.

The Americans with Disabilities Act provides certain protections to qualified employees or applicants with a disability. Any mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities is a disability under the ADA. Individuals with history of mental impairment or perceived as having such impairment are also protected by the ADA. This video reviews several common mental health impairments and the duty to accommodate these impairments; and discusses how to handle direct threats of harm to an employee or others.
