A new study makes the case that a supportive manager might help employees
with depression miss fewer days on the job.
The research, published Monday in BMJ Open, found that workplaces where
managers support and help employees with depression have lower rates of
missed days on the job due to depression. That support can come in the form
of a formal policy, a referral system for care, or transitional support to
help employees take time off work for mental health reasons and then return
to their roles.
