Basically, long story short Ive got post natal depression. I had it after my baby was born, thought it was sorted after taking anti d-pills, went back to work full time in sept and now its come back (may have not gone!) so im back on pills again after a tearful visit to drs. My GP advised that i tell my head about my depression because my employer has a duty to care/make provisons for me. Is he right? Should I discuss this with my head? I want to go pt (ive posted that here before) as along with other reasons, I feel it will help my mental state a lot. But im not sure how deeply i need to delve into my reasons. Im off sick as the moment, partly due to the flu, partly due to being stressed, but my school think its just the flu and nothing else. So, should i tell them whats going on? What would be the benefits of telling them? Will it be considered when i request pt?
