Using sick days for mental health should be the norm
Madalyn Parker sent an email to her company telling them: "I'm taking today and tomorrow to focus on my mental health. Hopefully I'll be back next week refreshed and back to 100%"
She was shocked when her CEO responded, thanking her for setting an example about the importance of taking sick days for mental health.
Ben Congleton is Madalyn's boss, the CEO of Olark, and joins Ali Mau on Drive.
