6 Mental Health Workplace Myths
When it comes to having a mental illness and having a job, there are, understandably, a lot of fears. There are also many different myths that we begin to believe as truths because, when you have a mental illness, the negative thoughts feel like the truth to us.
You're not stupid, but we are stupidly confident
In a famous line from Theatetus, Socrates compares his philosophical activity to midwifery (v, he maieutikê technê). Socrates, according to Maieutics, first facilitates and then criticises other people's ideas. In other words, Socrates felt that individuals were convinced of their own views, even if they were false, and that they could not recognise (as he did) that they simply "didn't know" things. As a result, he would probe them more and more until they began to doubt their earlier ideas or came to a different conclusion. This was not a quest for the ultimate truth, but rather to raise awareness of the reality that we know far less than we believe.
Hi. I want to write about how depressed I am feeling really. I honestly feel this is just abuse and torture and no reason for me to have to feel like this every day. It's not fair to me and I am really sick and tired of feeling like that. It is all caused by the supervisors at my workplace who made me feel like I can't be myself at work and I am sick and tired of it. No matter what they think, who I am and how I feel won't change. It's not even worth my while to have to feel all depressed every single day for this job because there are so many other jobs around that I can do. Just because I'm such a good worker, doesn't mean that they can be abusive towards me. Of course, they wouldn't think that they have done anything wrong or perhaps my way of dealing with what they thought of me was not good, which caused me to be seriously depressed. Either way, it has already caused me serious depression that I have to feel every single day of my life. It is a torture and a pain and I feel like I am in a really abusive relationship dealing with an alcoholic and drug addict.

Finding it hard to take breaks when freelancing? Try a Holiday Policy.
When you're self-employed, taking time off can be an unusual experience - on the one hand, you've effectively got 'unlimited' time off, being able to take a break whenever you wish, however on the other - none of that time is paid and when you can take that time off is often driven by others: when projects are finishing, when clients are away, when school holidays happen.
Why mental health at work matters even more when you're freelancing
It won’t have escaped you that mental health at work has become an increasingly important topic in recent years - with employers doing much more to look after their employees’ emotional wellbeing. Indeed, it is much needed - over 70% of sick days off are caused by work-related stress.

Unstable Energy and Trust
We had the oddest interaction with a would-be filmmaker the other night. This “former addict” who claims to be six years clean, was, I am told, decidedly not clean when he approached a certain publicist just three years ago and told us on THIS call he’d just “had a Xanax” so he’s calm, anxiety in check. Um. That’s the drug he’s claiming to be clean from.

An Introvert is a kind of shy person; someone who enjoys spending time alone and has a reserved kind of nature.
