Employers, Managers, Supervisors, Administrators, Employees and ALL others, do you support mental health days? Employers, if your employees come to you requesting to take a mental health day, how do you react? Employees, when you have requested mental health days, how did your employer act? Do people request mental health days or are they afraid to do so? Talk to me.
In my opinion, mental health days are REAL and should not be viewed as “an excuse” or a “cop out” for lack of better words. Sometimes, we need to get away from it all and RECHARGE! It is so important to TAKE CARE OF SELF. It's simple for some and far more complex for others. If you just need a day or two, take that time. If you have an extreme case where you may need more than a day or two and feel that you’re having a mental breakdown, seek professional help. There is NOTHING wrong with seeking help when you feel you can’t do something on your own.
Let’s stand together and SUPPORT MENTAL HEALTH DAYS 💕
