Take A Sick Day For Your Mental Health

CHARLOTTE, NC — A 26-year-old software developer has people talking after she emailed her team and boss to say she was taking a couple days off to focus on her mental health.

The CEO responded to her email saying it was a brave step to help cut through the stigma of mental health issues. Many employees today feel the need to hide mental health issues, and will even take a sick day when they’re not sick just to mentally recharge.

The EDGE panel is weighing in on the topic, and looking at how many people take sick days for their mental health.
