Living with a disability can be challenging. While there are many opportunities to have accommodations made and seek out assistance, this may not be enough. People in Ohio with a disability may find it challenging to do the day-to-day things, even making it impossible to hold down a job. When a disability impacts one's life significantly, it is important to consider ways to address these challenges and financial hardships.

Mental illness problems and the workplace

Unfortunately, we all get ill from time to time. In most cases, it is a minor situation that is easily resolved with over-the-counter remedies and some rest. Unfortunately, workers in Ohio and elsewhere suffer illnesses from a wide range of situations, including conditions in their workplace. This could cause the worker to lose time from work as he or she recovers. While many are aware of some well-documented occupational diseases such as lung disease, there are other serious workplace illnesses that do not get as much attention, including mental illnesses.

What are some common workplace injuries?

While we go to work most days of the week, depending on a person's occupation, employees in Ohio may not look at this as a time when they will be subjected to serious risks. Nevertheless, workers in all industries are faced with dangers and the potential of suffering a serious injury in the workplace.

However, there are other types of workplace illnesses that some individuals in Ohio and elsewhere do not automatically associate with the workplace. For example, depression and anxiety can be serious mental health problems, and the work environment could cause them.
