Breaking Down Barriers to Employment: Vocational Rehabilitation

Individuals with mental illness want to work and have the capacity to work, but are significantly underrepresented in the workplace. Vocational Rehabilitation is committed to assisting individuals with disabilities to maximize their employment potential and options. This webinar is intended for consumers, family members and providers.

Teachers are partnered with other trained PMC teachers in presenting this course and NAMI NH continues to provide materials, technical support and ongoing training.
If you are interested in teaching the Parents Meeting the Challenges series in your community, we will be offering the free teacher training in the Lakes Region and in the Concord area in June.
