Bipolar When It Counts

{June 22, 2012}   Question of the day #4.5

So here’s a question. At what point do you share with your employers that you are dealing with a mental illness?  I’m not looking for a general answer. When did you actually tell your employer, and what was their reaction?

As always, I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Leave your comments below.


If you have any issues you would like to see here, or articles and stories you would like to share, you can leave me a comment below, or email me at


As soon as i was diagnosed in Dec 2010, i informed my employer, had some very mixed reactions from various managers

I can see why that would be. I informed my house manager, but it didn’t go up any higher that that. As for right now, I just don’t know if I should say anything or not. Maybe when my probationary period is done?

What have you got to say?
