But after examining the scientific literature and consulting experts in Europe and the U.S., McGill University researchers Robert Thibault and Amir Raz conclude that clinical improvements from this increasingly popular alternative therapy are due to placebo effects.

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
