Griffith hosts mental health forum for employers

A mental health expert says employers should treat people with a mental illness no differently than those with a cold, or a condition like diabetes.

The Murrumbidgee Local Health District is behind a forum in Griffith today, encouraging employers to consider hiring someone with a mental illness.

The Clinical Mental Health Leader Sophie Covert says at least 45% of the population at any one time will be affected by a mental health issue.
