VAN NIEKERK, Lana. Participation in work: A human rights issue for people with psychiatric disabilities. S. Afr. j. occup. ther. [online]. 2008, vol.38, n.1, pp.9-15. ISSN 2310-3833.

The article will endeavour to situate discrimination against disabled people in the world of work as a human rights issue. An argument will be made for occupational therapists to give more attention to recent developments in the literature, policies and legislation in order to develop services that will best promote the participation of people with disability in work. Recommendations for service models will be made, each based on a case study that was developed using an interpretive biography research design.

Palabras clave : supported employment; vocational rehabilitation; psychiatric disability; human rights.
