WHEREFORE, the parties acknowledge that they have read and understand this Agreement and voluntarily accept the duties and obligations set forth herein.

Invisible Disabilities | NAIDW

Written by

Invisible Disabilities: Not all injury, illness, chronic pain, and disabilities are visible! You may have psychological or unseen physical scars that start after the initial injury or illness and last long after medical treatment and or any litigation is over. Problems like this can affect many workers relationships with the people they interact with and love, and will determine how well they readjust to life. These problems can also lead to other complications or can even be fatal. Unfortunately, many workers are not aware that they have these problems, and others fail to seek treatment because they fear being labeled as weak or as losing their status in life.

Mental Health Disorders:

* Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) * Depression * Substance Abuse

Get help for yourself!

* Talk with family and friends * Suicide Prevention Hotline Link & Phone Number * 800-273-8255 (TALK)


Pain Syndromes:

CFS, ME, RSD/CRPS, Fibromyalgia, CPS, MPS are some examples!
Pain syndromes are another disability that is not visible to the naked eye, but can be just as damaging as any other. These kinds of disabilities are extremely concerning because not only are they difficult to diagnose, they are just as difficult to treat because of the vast scale of the body they cover. This can also lead to the patient getting frustrated and loosing his/her self esteem and believing that no one can help. This is false? You must stay focused, be resilient, and most of all be patient.

Partners | NAIDW

Written by

Special Thanks To Our Sponsors & Partners!

These companies and organizations recognize the impact NAIDW has on families, communities, and the healthcare system. Their support provides the NAIDW Association with an opportunity to increase awareness of injured & disabled workers and to raise much needed funds to further our mission.

NAIDW recognizes the importance of working with the right businesses and professionals to maximize our efforts in promoting information, resources, and advocacy for injured & disabled workers and their families.

Our sponsors and advertisers come along side the Association informally and formally to advance the mission of the Association and make a difference in the lives of the men, women, and families in our communities. Although the word "sponsor" is used often we believe they are much more then that! We like to think of them as "partners" who help us advance our mission!

Uniting together under the idea of achieving a common goal is an underlying value within the injured & disabled workers community and one that leads to true change and progress. People with disabilities, injured workers, advocates, friends, family, organizations, businesses, and more must work together in order to realize access and equality for all injured & disabled workers and their families. NAIDW works every day with all members of the community to achieve this goal. Some of the Partners we work with are listed below...
