Review for SEARCH Homeless Services, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I was employee of this organization and am here to say that employees are treated much differently than clients. I was discriminated due to a mental illness disability and was offered no adjustment to the job when I revealed my bipolar diagnosis. This non-profit needs to have some adjustments in the way they treat employees.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would have sensitivity training mandatory and have attorneys advice staff on how to work with employees with a disability

Role:  General Member of the Public & I worked in fundraising.
 

Review for Depression And Bipolar Support Alliance, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

DBSA-Houston has made a huge impact in my recovery from bipolar disorder. I attend at least 2 support meetings a week and look forward to both. There is no other venue where I can hear firsthand how others are dealing with this severe diagnosis. I am in remission right now and am grateful for this. Last year, before attending DBSA, I had 4 hospitalizations ad 2 failed suicide attempts. Big difference today!

Role:  Client Served & attended support group meetings.
