Support Work Re-entry programs for Well-educated, Experienced ppl w/ MI Dx

All current work re-entry programs are geared toward less educated people with mental illness diagnoses, who have little work experience. But there are many people with diagnoses, whose lives have been destroyed, but who in their recovery now need more advanced help finding higher level jobs. All of these people have no support (financial, employment, housing) because they're not at the very bottom economically. But, they desperately need help finding work and housing, too.

        It's difficult to return to work even if you have had years and years of work experience. Most job help programs focus on entry-level types of employment and ignore a whole segment of the MH population.
