CEO's supportive response to employee taking a mental health day goes viral on the Internet

I saw this story on NBC Nightly News tonight, and I think it’s worth sharing.

A woman sent an email to her Team informing them that she’d be taking a couple of mental health days (that’s not unprecedented), but it’s her CEO’s supportive response that’s going viral on the Internet:


Thats nice. 1515151515

I’ve never worked anywhere where this would have been tolerated for very long.
Just as an aside. I’m wondering if the CEO honestly replied to an out of office email, or if that’s her perception.
