We’d rather talk about sex than mental illness


A Times article today, looks at issues involved in employing people with mental illness. It suggests that British employers, and employees, have far greater difficulty with mental illness than with physical illness, going as far as to say that we will discuss our sex lives at work but not mental illness.

The article could have gone further by looking at recruitment of people with mental illness rather than just looking at what can be done once an employee is diagnosed with a mental illness.

We have a long way to go yet toward inclusiveness, and a major cultural change will only come about through better workplace training and education on equal opportunities - and that includes discussing mental illness.
