A woman named Madalyn wrote her office an e-mail explaining she would be taking two days off to focus on her mental health. What she didn't expect was the e-mail response she received from the CEO of her company.
“I just wanted to personally thank you for sending e-mails like this,” he wrote. “Every time you do, I use it as a reminder of the importance of using sick days for mental health – I can’t believe this is not standard practice at all organizations. You are an example to us all, and help cut through the stigma so we can bring our whole selves to work.”
