I need some advice as i have been unable to locate anything sufficient online. Please bear with me as its a long(ish) story but I really need some thoughts on the issue: This year I was diagnosed with complex post traumatic stress disorder and mild depression. I am taking an anti depressant and took 2 weeks off school to acclimatise to the drug. I have been feeling much better since then and have not missed any more work days. However, 2 weeks ago I was extremely worried about a particular non school related issue and it caused me to back track a little. I felt stressed and anxious and although I was able to go about all of my normal school duties I knew that in myself I was not 100%. It was a difficult school week due to it being cross curricular (meaning teaching all different students across the whole school new and sometimes non specialist lessons) and on one of those mornings I felt the walls closing in. I had a free and was due to teach 3 more lessons that day but I decided to ask a colleague who had a very light timetable that week if he could cover me for my first lesson - just so that I could compose myself. He did not want to and suggested that I ask my HOD to find me a cover. I told him it was fine and I went back to my classroom where I started to have a panic attack (the classroom was empty). Another HOD was walking by and saw me so came to my aid and helped me through the attack (lots of shortness of breath and crying). She then sought a cover for my first lesson and this allowed me to gather myself sufficiently that I felt well enough to teach my next lesson. However, I was about 15 minutes into this lesson when she and my HOD took me out of my lesson to have a meeting with just the three of us. I was then told by my HOD in this private meeting that what I had done was extremely unprofessional and that I should have communicated my need for cover with her instead of asking a colleague to do it. I was told that I was a health and safety risk to my students by going into that lesson and that they should have reported me to the AP but they were going to keep it between us as long as it never happened again. At the time I was too shook up by the whole thing to fully assess what had happened but now looking back I am not sure as to whether this meeting was approproate. I have since had another issue of unprofessionalism regarding my HOD which led to me having another panic attack (at the weekend) and I have been looking for legal advice online regarding my rights and responsibilities as a teacher with a menal health disorder. All thoughts and advice appreciated.
