Synopsis: Parents endure work-related stress, and even job loss, as they attempt to accommodate their child’s mental health needs through employment adjustments. Family members often find themselves in situations in which they are presented with opportunities or requirements to share information about their children’s mental health status in the workplace. We describe a research-based model of communication competence to promote better employment outcomes for parents of children with mental health disorders.
