It’s my understanding based on several conversations over the last several months with one of my closest friends, who works in HR at a Fortune 10, that some short term disability *will* cover mental health leave, but it is dependent upon coverage and you need to work with your doctor to ensure you qualify. You might start there, or perhaps your employee assistance program, which can be confidential, to suss out what you need to qualify. Sending good vibes your way; I hope you find the benefits you need now or in the future weeks/months.

I am not sure of your situation and why you are asking, but when I looked into this about ten years ago (horrible job and needed a mental health break) any disability used like this would be considered a psychiatric leave, which you don't really want to do. I instead asked my doctor to write a note for me saying I needed to take two weeks off due to some health concerns. I didn't get paid but it was just what I needed at the time. Hope that helps.

Depends on the agency and the situation, but even though it’s illegal to do this, they might try and push you out

I live alone and have loved the time not traveling but WFH has really started getting to me the past few weeks. On top of that, I got a series of bad news this week that really took a toll on my mental health (one has affected my ability to visit family), and I’ve never felt this alone in my life. I miss having an office to go to and see others in. Even started skipping workouts & cooking, both of which I love. Could use hugs and inspiration to get past this hump
