Missing Work Due to Mental Illness

How can someone with mental illness become well-versed in their rights and possible accommodation options so that they don’t fear job loss every time they have a mental health time off?

Check out this site specifically about how your mental health rights SHOULD work in Australia: humanrights.gov.au

I think it’s a great tool in knowing what you could be doing and what your employers should be doing to help you out.  This information is built upon basic human rights, but I realise it is an ideal and is not what currently happens to folks like is living with mental illness.  I’d love to hear what others have to say and what other resources you recommend, especially for the state of Queensland.
