    I just found this very nice article on a study that was performed on a range of people with mental illness. The results where actually very promising, and showed a definate increase in illness sustainability through work programs, return to work programs and earning a living in general.

    And this is what jumps out at me, highlighting the fact that those with mental illness can recover to some sort of semi-normal life once they learn how to manage their PTSD effectively. Sometimes this goes hand in hand with having an employer that is willing to make it a little easier for employee's with mental illness, through down time and such labour reflections.
