In today’s busy world, mental health isn’t really given that much importance.
According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, there’s about 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experience mental illness each year. These illnesses include depression, anxiety disorder, panic disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and more. And 60% of those adults do not even get professional help in a given year.
That’s why when this woman, Madalyn Parker, asked her boss to have two days off to focus on her mental health, she didn’t expect that her boss would react like this!
And her boss’ response to her off-work e-mail goes like…
Due to the reponse that she got from her boss, she immediately posted it on her Twitter account, gathering different reactions from the netizens..
See their reactions below.
Indeed, we all would like a boss just like Madalyn’s. People should see the importance of mental health as it is as important (or probably more) as physical wellness.
