Good words: Stigma, Mental Illness and Employment- A short film written by Rob Whitley

Dr. Rob Whitley recently wrote a short and poignant film tracing the story of Elizabeth, a gifted and highly qualified candidate attending a job interview. All appears to be going swimmingly, until the conversation turns towards the subject of mental illness. While this film is a work of fiction, research indicates that it represents a reality played out daily.

The film can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJ5Wx_LhGUc
