Can FMLA cover mental health problems?

I recently tried to hang myself and my neighbors saw me and called the police. It was prevented, but I haven’t really slept in days and I’ve called in 2 days in a row, when I really shouldn’t have.

    Your better option would probably be disability. Your mental health practitioner would write up your diagnosis then you'd use that to make the application.

    Yes, it can cover mental health issues.

    You don't say when it occurred, but if you had attempted suicide as you say, wouldn't you still be in protective custody while being evaluated for mental illness?

      Police didn’t deem me as a threat to myself or others, so they left me in the care of my sister and told me to go to the hospital. I’ve got an apt. with a psychiatrist coming up.

    FMLA ONLY covers leave approved BEFORE taking time off. It NEVER covers calling in.
