I've never done this for work, but I've had days where I've gone to school, had a minor mental break down and went right back home again. Do I want to start crying in front of people? Nope, time to go home.

I have personal leave that I can use how I please ... if I'm not in court and having a slow week, I may take a day off to recharge !

I'm glad my company has an allotted amount of personal days. It's very helpful!

Well, when you work in the mental health field you DEFINITELY need a personal mental health day. My coworkers and I don't do this too often, but it's no secret that people do it at work. Dealing with other people's shit all day can be stressful and you need a day to recoup.

I did it today as well! I just hate how my life seems to be on fast forward sometimes. I got a lot of work done around the house and then I also napped and read a book. I am ready for a new day!

I really need one of these, but I don't want to because of the economy...why jeopordize something that so many people would kill to have?

In the 20-plus years I have been at my job, I have NEVER called off just for the heck of it. I know several who do this and think nothing of it. I schedule my vacation time with Fridays off for several months. That gives me a "veg out" day, or I schedule appointments for them. My co-workers get ticked, but I remind them that I have earned my time and how I use it is up to me. I also remind them that I do not ABUSE my leave. But, watchya gonna do?

Around this time of year, I like to call it "spring fever" :)

i feel there is nothing wrong with taking a mental health day!! sometimes you just need a day off. i've taken them before, and i often suggest my boy take one every now in then because his job can be so stressful!! i have to limit myself, due to the fact that i'm a full time college studnet!! i'm hardly ever sick, so i just take my sick days as mental health days:)

Nah, I don't take off just for the heck of it. I can find time when I'm not working or on the weekend to just chill out.

I'd feel too guilty doing this! I am grateful to have my job, a lot of my friends are out of work due to the economy.

This is frowned upon at my office. I need permission to take a day off and if I call in sick I better damn well be sick.
