Employment specialists and mental health practitioners should talk together about the situation. When there are concerns about safety for clients or community members, supervisors and psychiatrists should be included in those conversations. One example might be someone with a drinking problem who wanted to be a bartender. In that situation you might explain that you could not help the person with bartending jobs because it could be detrimental to his health. If a person who was sober wanted to wait tables in a restaurant that served alcohol (because the tips would be higher) you might talk with him about the possible risks of working around alcohol, but help him anyhow if that is what he wanted to do. In that case, the mental health treatment team might also provide extra supports to help him maintain sobriety.
