Workshop on silent disabilities set

TERRE HAUTE — On May 20, Wabash Valley Business Leadership Network will present an informative workshop on “silent” disabilities in the workplace. Registration and continental breakfast will be at 8 a.m. with the workshop from 8:30 11:30 in Heritage Ballroom, Tirey Hall, Indiana State University.

Jennifer Hutchens, behavioral health professionals from Hamilton Center, and Dr. Randall Stevens, medical director of Union Hospital Center for Occupational Health, will provide information on how to provide accommodations to help employees with disabilities — many who have not self-identified — be successful in the workplace. Exhibitors will be on hand to share information in conjunction with May being Mental Health Awareness Month.

Silent disabilities could include arthritis, ADHD, autism, cancer, diabetes, hearing/sight impairment, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, mental illness and substance addictions.

There is no charge to attend; however, reservations are required and can be made at www.indstate.

edu/blumberg/events.htm. This program and the provided materials are being made possible through a grant from ADA-Indiana.

The BLN-WV is an education organization. Members engage in networking discussions to increase their knowledge of community outreach, recruiting and interviewing, the accommodation process and barriers to employment. By participating in a business-to-business dialog, employers learn how to leverage their organizations for success. Being a part of the BLN sends a message to the community that your business is committed to including people with disabilities in the workforce. For more information, contact Karen Rusk at hrklr@uhhg.org.
