Are you required to give staff 'mental health days'?

It’s undeniable that employee mental health has deteriorated as a consequence of the overwhelming impact of coronavirus.

Mind statistics show that over half of all adults and two-thirds of younger professionals now feel like their mental health has gotten worse as a result of lockdown restrictions as of May 2020. Nearly two thirds also noted that their levels of loneliness had increased due to being unable to see family and friends – whilst remote working is sure to have had an impact on this statistic too.
