Jenny Ann:
Firing somebody from a job because they have a mental disorder is illegal. Here in Massachusetts, we have a Commission Against Discrimination that handles such matters; at the federal level, it's the Equal Employment Opportunity Council (EEOC). The Commission Against Discrimination allows a person with a mental disorder to self-identify such to the company; the EEOC works in a similar manner. The company must respond with a reasonable accommodation to the disorder: See also the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1991. If you believe that you have been fired from yuour job because of your mental disorder, you can sue the company. Good luck from a fellow sufferer.
