ANN ARBOR, MI -- One woman's email to her team, including her boss, might put taking a mental health day in high priority.

Not a sick day. A "mental" health day. Check out her now-viral email:

We'd all hope our own boss would respond the way hers did.

C'mon. Raise your hand if you've ever actually used a sick day to rest your mind, then told your boss about it?

Her honest message might turn out to be pretty enlightening.

Several people on Twitter claimed their boss would never be okay with them taking off for "mental health" reasons.

Well, the CEO got wind of his trending email and responded.

"It`s 2017. I cannot believe that it is still controversial to speak about mental health in the workplace when 1 in 6 Americans are medicated for mental health."

He's got a good point! Maybe it's the boss's job to make sure workers don't lose their mind at work.
