Bernie Mitchell is a small business owner and real estate agent. He says he would have no problem hiring someone with a mental illness in his business Focus Property Management in Sydney.
That's largely because he knows what it's like to be in their shoes. Mitchell, 38, suffers from bipolar disorder.
