    Nope, I love my job and it's always super busy so I hardly even take sick days when I'm actually sick or use much annual leave. I think I've taken about 5 days annual leave in 2 years and only 1 full sick day

    Not anymore as I run my own business. I basically have to be physically unable to be vertical not to go to work.

    When I was a classroom teacher I did (maybe twice a year).

    Do you want to read the op again? The days off are for mental health days . Aren't you lucky you don't suffer from anxiety and have the job I do ?

    Some people don't get it... And how can you understand it if you've never been touched by it or know someone that has, it's like trying to explain colours to someone that's blind so don't even go there.

    But lots of us do understand. Xxxxxxxx just focus on us

    In not working at the moment but I never took them when I was. One, because I was raised to go to work unless you're dying, and two, it would be more stressful after a day of work not being done. I hated my job and I would secretly cry on the bus trip most mornings (I've never told anyone this). Mostly due to the incompetence if my work colleagues and the pressure placed on me by management to pick up the slack despite already doing the job of 3 previous employees. I'm dreading going back next year. I'm sure I will be looking for any reason to be sick so I can snuggle with dd.

    I certainly have and I believe they're good for me. I encourage others in my workplace to take them too.

    Kimberly probably didn't know that's what you were getting at in the OP. The term 'mental health day' is so widespread nowdays it is thrown around by those not suffering mental health problems... (Ie people without illness just wanting a day off)z

    I don't have mental health days unless they are 'by the book'. If I need a rest I plan to take an annual leave day. If I am sick I take a sick day (rare though, eg 1 day every couple of years on average). I can't chuck a sickie if I am not sick ... I feel too guilty. But in my line of work if I did have mental health issues (anxiety etc) and a doctor signed a certificate I would be entitled to a sick day so I wouldn't have any concerns about taking it (if that makes sense!).

    I am not working at the moment but if I was, and felt I desperately needed it, I would.

    My DH took a few in the last couple of years, he was being treated very poorly by a few people at his work and he needed a break from it. His employer wasnt going to do anything about the way this other person was acting so DH needed some respite from it.

    Just be aware...it is not only people with mental 'illness' that need to be aware of and maintain their mental health. Not everyone with mental illness was born that way.
