Eye on Ethics: Social Workers and Self-Disclosure
Department (Manual Entry)
School of Social Work
Recently, the National Public Radio program Here & Now broadcast a compelling segment, “If You Have a Mental Illness, Should You Tell Your Employer?” During the segment, a guest who lives with bipolar disorder shared her ambivalence about telling employers about her mental health challenges. Understandably, she has concerns about how employers and fellow employees will treat her if they know details about her struggles.
