This is sometimes a missing piece regarding mental health and work. It’s not just the people who work for you, it’s the people who work for you with kids or other family members dealing with mental health issues.
“Why do employers need to take a leadership role in addressing this crisis?

You probably should, because that work is more draining and more important than your work is.
If you are in this situation, how can your employer support you?
