Faculty, staff, physicians, and human resources may struggle to understand when a leave of absence from work and accommodations with return to work are appropriate in situations involving mental health impairments. Dr. Saragoza will present a framework that provides a consistent approach to these complex issues.  A panel will follow his presentation.


Philip Saragoza, MD is a forensic psychiatrist with the UM Department of Psychiatry and the State of Michigan’s Center for Forensic Psychiatry who serves as a consultant on issues related to psychiatric disability.
