Your absence from work
Make sure you know your sickness policy if you have one. It sets out rules for contacting your work.
If you are finding work difficult because of a mental health related condition, Remploy, in partnership with Access to Work, can assist you. They offer a free and confidential Mental Health Support Service to help you remain in, or return to, work.
The Government’s Fit for Work scheme offers advice to employees on taking a leave of absence.
HSE also has advice if you are off sick and worried about your job about talking to your GP and keeping in touch with work.
Remember recovery: people live and work successfully with a mental health problem.
