While we come across many depressing things in our daily life, a great and humane story comes along that shows there are still the nice people in this World.

Madalyn Parker – a web developer from Ann Arbor, Michigan – recently got famous on Twitter after her one specific tweet got more than 15 thousand retweets. In her tweet, she shared an exchange she’d had with her CEO after she emailed her team to tell them she was taking time off for mental health reasons.

And Madalyn’s boss response to her request was perfect.

The response to the tweet was also overwhelmingly positive.

People also shared their stories showing how awful their companies were in treating employees who had mental health issues.

In response to the reaction the tweet had received, Madalyn’s CEO Ben Congleton wrote a post on Medium, which was titled, “It’s 2017 and Mental Health is still an issue in the workplace.”

“It’s 2017,” he wrote. “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.

“It’s 2017. I cannot believe that it is still controversial to offer paid sick leave. Did you know that only 37% of full time employees in the US have paid sick leave?

“It’s 2017. We are in a knowledge economy. Our jobs require us to execute at peak mental performance. When an athlete is injured they sit on the bench and recover. Let’s get rid of the idea that somehow the brain is different.”
