There Are Absolutely Times When You Need A Mental Health Day

For decades there has been a stigma surrounding mental health. Thankfully, this stigma has slowly but steadily been fading as our society advances… but. we’re not there yet.

For example, if you came down with a physical health issue such as the flu, you’d likely need to stay home and rest. And your co-workers would likely thank you for not coming into the office when you’re sick.
