(Video) Breaking the Stigma of Depression by Taking a Mental Health Day

1280 720 Dr Rozina Lakhani

Are you hesitant to take a mental health break because of the negative stigma associated with depression?

You can easily feel guilty about not being physically sick and taking some time off if you don’t feel well. But mental health is as important as physical health, and must also be taken care of if you want to stay healthy.

Unfortunately, some work environments do not accept sick days unless you are physically ill. Thus, you will need to decide whether to be honest about the reason for your absence or call it your physical sickness.

Would you like to learn how I helped my patient overcome the stigma surrounding mental health and properly request a mental health time so she can perform at her best without burnout?

Benefits of Taking a Mental Health Day

Studies have shown that taking a break can help you:

  • improve productivity and creativity. 
  • de-stress, relax, and rest
  • understand your emotions
  • reset your perspective
  • step back and reevaluate your goals in life

When you are overwhelmed and stressed, you tend to not see things clearly. By taking a break, you will be more focused, more productive, and be able to get back on track. This way, you are not only helping yourself, but also your company, your family, and the people around you.
