If someone has a mental illness, like anxiety or depression for example, for over 12 months and they can show that it’s causing them substantial disadvantages at work, it can be classed as a disability. This means the employee is protected by the Equality Act if colleagues or their employer were to discriminate against them because of their mental illness. It also means that their employer is legally required to make reasonable adjustments to support them at work. But even if it’s not classed as a disability, management should always offer as much support as they can.
