..Special Issue aims to understand the workplace experiences of individuals with mental illness with a particular emphasis on how HR practices and process may influence these experiences. Drawing upon empirical, theory-driven research, we can better understand the ways in which employees with mental illness experience the workplace and identify the factors that contribute to such experiences. Such advances are critical because work is important for individuals with mental illness as it provides structure, gives them a sense of purpose and belonging, and improves their general well-being and financial independence. As researchers begin to explore in detail the work experiences of employees with mental illness, organizations can become better prepared to manage and support these individuals.
