That's the question that has irked Brenda Johnson over the last decade as she struggled to find employment and provide for herself and her children while trying to manage her manic depression.
Having never graduated from high school, Johnson, 50, said she never knew quite what to say, how to act or what to do when facing a potential boss in an interview.
"I was very tense. I mean, when I look back on it, I was holding on to the chair for comfort," Johnson said. "I was scared."
That self-realization, however, came only after Johnson watched a video of herself recently during a mock interview. The recorded interaction is one of the key tools used by Pillars' employment services program, which strives to find jobs for people with mental illnesses.
