NYAPRS Note: Over 20 years ago, Joe Marrone, then Senior Program Manager for Public Policy at the Institute for Community Inclusion emerged as a leading proponent for employment for people with psychiatric disabilities with these famous words: “If You Think Work is Bad for People with Mental Illness, What About Poverty, Unemployment, and Social Isolation?” Accordingly, Joe’s impact on our work ranks akin to psychiatric rehabilitation founder Bill Anthony.
NYAPRS is very pleased to host Joe in a new webinar by the same name in which he’ll advance strategies on how to avoid long term unemployment and to promote employment as a key component of recovery within systems of care. This webinar is for everyone, including people looking for employment, direct care providers and administrators. Don’t miss this one!
