To Disclose or Not to Disclose; Mental Illness and Human Rights 23 Aug 2013

Changing Minds Forum

  • Friday the 23rd of August
  • Western Springs Garden Community Hall
  • 10am – 12pm

When should you tell your flat mate you live with mental illness? Your new love interest? What about your employer?

This month Changing Minds are hosting a workshop entitled “To disclose or not to disclose; mental illness and human rights.” The workshop will look at “disclosure” from a human rights perspective and is designed to enable us to make informed decisions about what we choose to share with others.
