Has anyone taken a leave of absence for mental health/suicide/depression? I’m getting there but I’m also the primary earner in my house.

I took paid medical leave for this. Had to prove that it was an ongoing medical issue though, so you’ll need a history of seeing a therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist

Conversely, if things are bad enough that you go to a hospital, then you’re pretty much guaranteed medical leave coverage

Yes to both. Let me know if you’d like help on FMLA process. It’s worth it

Sounds good! Look forward to hearing from you 🤗

I think there’s paid leave for that at many firms up to x number of weeks, or falls under FMLA. I wish I had more specifics, I’m trying to figure out the same thing too, except I don’t have any dependents.

At my small/mid-sized firm it looks like it’s unpaid though, so I’m confused since competing firms seem to have it.

Has anyone made the jump from in-house legal over to the business side? How did the transition go? Would you do over it again? I work in a niche area (workplace health and safety) and have gotten a promotion in place, but have maxed out my growth in the legal department if I want to stay in safety. Only way for me to be promoted and stay in safety is to jump to the business side but I’m hesitant to give up doing legal work.

Thought I’d share an amazing nugget I got from my therapist this week about how anxiety and depression is also tied to our nervous system. We tend to move up and down throughout these different stages within our nervous system, tied to physical symptoms of anxiety/depression. If you’re struggling with treatment resistant mental health issues, or just in general, Google “Vagus Nerve Exercise”. It helps reset your nervous system. Hope this can help someone else too!
