Pacific Rim Conference on Disabilities

I recently returned from the Pacific Rim Conference on Disabilities and so am recovering from “Hawaii-time.”  I hope to have a new podcast up by the end of this week along with information from the conference.

You can find out more information at:  http://www.pacrim.hawaii.edu/

My presentation was:

Disability Law and Policyˆ’The Mental Disability Exception

Mental disorders and psychiatric conditionsˆ’hidden disabilities, are the most prevalent of all disabilities. Disability rights laws promised to end exclusion and inequality. However, for individuals with mental impairments and psychiatric disabilities, the law does not extend the same protections.
