EVEN THE REQUEST STOP BUTTON WAS PADDED. MINTY & FRIEND / 18 January 2009

I did some interesting acting work today for Minty & Friend, who are a company that tackle the subject of disability, discrimination, the DDA, and reasonable adjustments using acting, role play, workshops, dinners, mentoring, actually all sorts of things - with compassion, imagination and humour. If are looking at a way to tackle those kind of issues in the workplace, Minty & Friend's website is a good place to start. Not only does it offer a range services, it also has a resource section. Minty and Friend Today we tackled the subject about disclosure, do you tell your boss or not if you have a mental health issue, and what the repercussions of that might be. And how reasonable adjustments can be made, but how do you reasonably adjust people's negative attitude and ignorance towards mental health? It is a bit of a minefield, but a minefield is a good place to dance. I don't know what I mean by that last sentence but it sounds good so I am going to keep it in. Love Dollyx
