Mental illness is not a catastrophic injury. It is more akin to a disease such as diabetes insomuch as it can be controlled, often to the extent that the sufferer can return to work as long as accommodations are made (which is what the law requires from secular employers). However, because of ignorance and bigotry many (I would guess, most) employers and potential employers view those who have suffered from mental illness as useless - in fact, worse than useless, as liabilities. The physically disabled person will hopefully land the best job he or she is capable of doing. The mentally disabled person does not get that opportunity often. The Church has been told by a very good psychiatrist (who they paid for) that I would be a better than average parish priest even though I live with mental health problems. Therefore, my frustration is in not being allowed to do what I am capable of doing, not because of my problems but because of somebody else's problems of prejudice and ignorance.
