I had a lot of anxiety and was depressed but I was working then and so the docs put me on sick and thought it best for me to be away for a month but I feel its too long.

And are you OK to go back , did they do something with your meds. Or is it a kind of perspective change kind of thing

For such a short break. What about a self-esteem course? Are also a few courses around more in tune with mental health like a WRAP course (wellness recovery action plan). Medication management courses, Symptom management courses. Hardest thing is tracking down the places that do them.
