AbstractHaving a job as a youth or young adult is a predictor of long-term work success. Having a job has also been related to improved self-esteem, self-efficacy, and life satisfaction. However, there is a significant gap in work experience for many young adults living with mental health conditions. This tip sheet has information on 1) why work is especially important for young adults; 2) the impact of receiving disability benefits rather than employment early in life; 3) how to cultivate motivation toward employment goals; 4) ways to promote work experiences; 5) tips on helping young adults with mental health conditions get a job; 6) and resources to learn more.
