Would an employer also be expected to support someone with an ongoing physical concern?
The state and lack of mental health services shows how much mental health is still devalued by government. Working with someone's mental health is just as risky as any medical procedure, with far-reaching consequences.
The current approach to mental health is simply a way of bailing out government from their responsibilities. I know people need to be aware, and be helpful in an emergency, but the expectation on an employer is too much in my opinion. I'm convinced government want employers to carry their staff until the end.
The amount of people negatively impacted by their mental health, complexities and heaviness of mental health is much more than 20 years ago. Trauma has a way of spreading like a virus, fortunately so does healing.
