Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against employees who suffer from mental health issues. Mental disabilities are covered by the ADA to the same extent as physical disabilities. A physical or mental impairment will constitute a disability under the ADA if it “substantially impairs one or more major life activities,” which are broadly defined to include activities such as concentrating, thinking, learning, communicating, and reading.

According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), an extensive range of mental illnesses may qualify as disabilities, including anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, major depression, and personality disorders. Since many mental health conditions occur occasionally and at irregular intervals, it is important to note that an impairment is considered a disability if it “substantially limits a major life activity” when active.
