Invisible Disabilities: Supporting people with conditions we can't see

Your population could be suffering in silence with hidden impairments and challenges. Here's how to help.

The word “disability” often elicits a picture of an individual with mobility impairments. But the truth is that many disabilities include conditions that are not always apparent to the outside world. 
Also known as "invisible disabilities," these conditions are more common than you may realize. It's estimated that 1 in 10 U.S. adults are living with a hidden disability, such as anxiety, PTSD, ADD, ADHD, diabetes, chronic fatigue, cancer, or HIV/AIDS1.

"In the United States, sixty-one million people are
experiencing some kind of functional impairment associated with a disability. The question for us must be: How can we be more inclusive?"
— Dr. Jessica Isom, Virgin Pulse Science Advisory Board

Building an inclusive culture that embraces employees of all abilities and backgrounds is fundamental for your organization's DEI initiatives. And embracing the abilities of all members of your workforce is essential to employee engagement, wellbeing, and retention.
