I am currently recovering from an episode of clinical depression which has involved time out of school and treatment.(essentially CBT with trained professionals). I am now preparing for my return to work and am aware that I am likely to be asked about my absence and am considering my responses. The stigma of mental health is such that I dont want to hide my illness and yet I dont want to proclaim to all and sundry either. What would be an acceptable repsonse to any questions I might be asked? Not sure I have explained this very well at all, sorry!
