Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

Can NOVA Help You?

28 Aug 2009NOVA Employment doesn't only help people with serious physical and intellectual disabilities, but they also do great work with sufferers of mental illness such as, but not limited to; bi-polar and depression.

This is a video testimonial of one of NOVA’s clients – Christine, who suffers from bi-polar disorder.
Christine and her new employer, Eva, talk about her new job as a merchandiser with Nature’s Plant Logistics near Windsor.

She started off working one day a week and now works three days a week in a job that she loves. With the help of her Employment Consultant, Darren, she has been supported through her role and now has the confidence to work independently.

She talks about how other employers in the past, had found it hard to understand mental illness and it had made her uncertain about working with new employers. But with the assistance of Darren, the staff at Nature’s Plant Logistics understand her needs and can accommodate her accordingly.

Take a look at this video by clicking this link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=735yOFYcCzE -, it shows just one of NOVA’s many happy clients, who have been matched to a job that suits them perfectly, one they may have not been able to get into on their own.
