Coworkers who also have mental health issues.
I function a bit at work with one supervisor as a mental health resource. But this is now in the past as I moved onto a smaller office now with no one in our office at the same job level as me. In the old job there were hundreds of us at the same level. At the mental health week talk earlier this month I knew three workers who attended and did not know two of them had mental health issues until I saw them there. I had helped the third person get permission to attend. This person and our mutual supervisor and myself all have mental health issues. This supervisor was only recent and had been a coworker of mine and we both confided in each other about mental health issues. This was good but that was in my old duties and I am moving up to new duties where basically I work alone for a senior person as his research assistant. So far work has been good. I have mostly been reading and proof reading research reports and helping rewrite them.
