Having a job is not only possible for people living with a mental illness, it also can be a key component to maintaining good mental health and to recovery.

The At Work program helps Nova Scotians living with a mental illness who are unemployed or under-employed obtain competitive employment by connecting them to workplaces that match their strengths, skills, and needs to build resilience and bring experienced employees to workplaces.
