Employability – Dept. of Work and Pensions – short film clip.

The Department of Work and Pensions recently released this public information film intended to challenge arritudes to the employment of people with a history of mental illness.   The following paragraph is the DWP introduction to the film. 

“Mental health is a frequently misunderstood area of disability, particularly in the workplace. Our film challenges attitudes to people with mental health conditions and prompts employers who may dismiss job candidates with a history of mental health conditions to think again.

The film shows a busy casualty department looking for a new member of staff who can step in and make life or death decisions. But will the talented candidate who has had previous mental health problems be given the job?”
