The plan to carry out a study on bias at work against those with disabilities is laudable ("Study on bias at work against those with disabilities"; Oct 31).
But will the study also include mental illness?
According to the Americans with Disabilities Act in the United States, mental impairment is a form of disability.
The symptoms from a mental illness can be just as debilitating as that of other disabilities.
This will provide a more holistic view of the discrimination faced by this group of people.
