Mental Illness Affects Job Prospects More Than Physical Disability

 The stigma of mental illness often has a greater impact on people's employment prospects than physical disability or illness, Australian researchers reported today.

The study, commissioned by WISE Employment, a not-for-profit organization aimed at empowering job seekers to find meaningful work, revealed that mental illness, even in today's supposed period of apparent enlightenment, continues to be a serious obstacle to employment.

The study was commissioned as part of Mental Health Week, which started on Sunday, October 7th, 2012.
