Would you be comfortable sharing a mental health disability with your colleagues?

"Minority Nurse" recently published an article on self-advocacy for

nurses with mental health disabilities. The article

prompted thoughts about the following questions:  

Would you be comfortable disclosing a mental health disability?
Would you be able to advocate for yourself?
Do you know your rights? Are you or a colleague "scared silent"?
Is stigma alive and well where you work?
A small step toward greater awareness could be to share this article with your colleagues.
Can you share? Post on a bulletin board or in the nurses lounge?

With thanks in advance!
