Growing up in modern society, we already know that having any kind of handicap, physical or mental, limits an individual’s social, economic, and class mobility throughout their life due to a number of factors, including stereotypes and prejudice held by modern society. In my paper I will be arguing that employment assistance for mentally ill persons does not currently provide enough support for the rapidly increasing number of participants on employment and welfare support programs. I will first address the issues faced my mentally disabled persons every day in the workplace and I will dispel the myths commonly held about the mentally ill and their abilities. I will then discuss the different types of employment support currently offered

A client that has expressed he has been suffering from severe bipolar disorder and his quality of life is so compromised by his illness that he logically and rationally chooses suicide, should be involuntary admitted to a mental health facility. As a counselor for the client it is ethically necessary to try to minimize harm where it is foreseeable and unavoidable (3.04, American Psychological Association, 2002). Subsequently, petitioning to have the client admitted to a mental health facility will serve as a means of trying to minimize harm to the client. According to Illinois law the client is a candidate for involuntary admission to a mental health facility because due to his illness he is reasonably expected to engage in dangerous conduct which places him in harm (405 ILCS 5/1 119).

The petition would include the descriptions of client’s symptoms of bi polar disorder such as his reports of terrifying and tormenting episodes of depressive psychosis as well as his feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. Most important, the petition would also include his announcement that he has decided to commit suicide, rather than fight his recurrent mental illness. In addition to the reasons
