Mental Illness, Employment Integration, and Workplace Health. Unemployment rates among people with serious mental illness range between 80% and 90%, making this group one of the most recipients of social security in Canada and the United States. This is unfortunate because most people with the illness desire and can work, but they are excluded from the workforce because of stigma of the illness.

Mental health and illness have never been the exclusive domain of medicine. The very idea of ‘mental illness’ raises many broad questions. What behaviour is ‘normal’? What is being ‘rational’? Opinions have always differed about the best way to define and treat mental health. Many people today, including expert patients, view mental health as a biomedical issue. These include spirit possession, sin, and social injustice such as the legacy of genocide, enslavement or oppression. As a result, people may seek help through prayer, confession, spiritual guidance, exorcism, political activism, social change and creative expression. These approaches are not separate and opposed. Few people are purists when confronted with a mental health problem.

Medical sociologists study the physical, mental, and social components of health and illness. Major topics for medical sociologists include the doctor-patient relationship, the structure and socioeconomics of health care, and how culture impacts attitudes toward disease and wellness. The Social Construction of the Illness Experience. The idea of the social construction of the illness experience is based on the concept of reality as a social construction. The social construction of the illness experience deals with such issues as the way some patients control the manner in which they reveal their disease and the lifestyle adaptations patients develop to cope with their illnesses. In terms of constructing the illness experience, culture and individual personality both play a significant role.
