HeadsUp

Having a conversation with your manager about your mental health can feel daunting. You might be worried about negative reactions or being treated differently, or just unsure of what to say. You’re generally under no obligation to tell your employer about your condition, but making them aware means you’ll be able to access any support you need. Remember that people are unable to help if they don’t know what’s going on.
