    In the work place – an employer can easily remove your basic Human rights … we only have temporary privlleges … Managers are unaccounatable for their actions – and can easily by-pass the common dignity and respect that everyone deserves.

    An amazing experience this two day conference. I met lots of interesting people and found a commonality with them. I feel I am not alone and as I said to my Peer Support Coordinator, I can finally be ‘ME’ and ‘ME’ is alright. Looking forwards to seeing the outcome of the World Cafe and all the interesting remarks and thoughts. And the fantastic piano players that was a welcome treat, thankyou for allowing me to be part of this fantastic conference.
