When we make accommodations for mental health and other “invisible disabilities” a collaborative effort between employers and employees, we can make a difference.
Employees, share your stories. Your employer probably has no clue what it’s like to be you – so tell them!
Employers, be open to conversations like this and make use of FMLA to clarify expectations when it comes to treatment plans. Consider flex time too. Those are just some of the things that helped me.
