The Difference Between Talking and Having
There was all this training at work about talking about your mental health. We had posters and speakers and it was all really good stuff. Yet when I came back to work after a bad patch, I felt really awkward. No one said anything. I got the sense that the team were really annoyed at having to pick up the slack while I was out. It just showed me that there’s a world of a difference between talking about mental health and having an actual problem with it.
