Dealing With Mood Disorders at Work

Is It Wise to Be Open About Your Mental Health Issues at the Office?

Having a mood disorder can make others who aren't familiar with it feel uncomfortable, and that's why there needs to be more education on it. Fifty-three percent of professionals polled say they aren't confident in their ability to support a colleague with a mental health disorder like anxiety or depression, according to a study by beyondblue and Beaton Research & Consulting.

How you act with friends is different from how you act with your colleagues, so perhaps there is no need to confide in your co-worker or boss about your struggles with your mood disorder unless it's affecting your productivity. What do you think — would you tell people at work about your mental health problems if you had any?
