Would it hurt my progression at the firm if I mental health leave as an associate? New hire exp associate so less than one year at the firm but not fresh out of college. It's not due to job-specific stress or burnout, I think I'm going to need to check into an inpatient or partial program in the near future. I almost did a few weeks ago because I basically couldn't function, but fortunately pulled through. I'm not doing that much better so thinking of what impact LOA may have before I need one.

I’m a LCSW, have been working in mental health for 10 years, and have a job that enables HRSA to pay off my student loans. I really want to go back to medical school to be a psychiatrist. I’d like to pay my student loans off before taking on more debt but worry I will be way too old to go back since I already feel way too old at 38 to do it. Has anyone over the age of 35 gone back to med school? What were your challenges? Was it worth it?
