Struggling with my mental health. Doctors signed me off sick. How much detail should I go into with the partners I work with? Have really good working relationship with them and don't want my mental health to hinder my progression.

Do not disclose. There's way too much stigma around mental health, and you owe them nothing.

100% agree. That information will never be used to help you and will in most cases be held against you, even subconsciously or unintentionally.

Sorry you’re struggling. I am as well. I think many of us are and just don’t speak up. Keep your chin up!

I’d provide details only to HR or the third party carrier issuing the determination on the leave/accommodation. And only to the degree they need those details to approve. I wouldn’t tell supervisors anything beyond that I need the time and am working with HR per firm policy

My company offers DTO (discretionary time off with no buckets or limits) For the first time since I started 6 years ago, my boss told me it should be 3-4 weeks off as a rule of thumb. I was taken back because that seems like it defeats the purpose of DTO and in the past I've taken up to 5 weeks without issues. My employees are now really disgruntled and I'm between going to my boss or to straight to HR. What does DTO mean to you? Can they really put limits if none are in the DTO policy?
