WORLD DAY OF SOCIAL JUSTICE: Can Disclosing Your Mental Health Status Prevent You From Getting A Decent Job?
February 20th, is the Day celebrated as World Day of Social Justice. As I read through un.org and scanned through social media, I kept asking myself, what does a day like this mean to persons managing their mental health? What difference does it make to them?
It is my firm believe that for the mentally ill to effectively manage their mental health in Nigeria and be given an equal opportunity to thrive in the society, there must be mutual platforms for them to access decent work opportunities that support them without the fear of the stigma or prejudice that is currently associated with mental health issues in Nigeria.
