Getting FMLA for Mental Health: What You Need to Know in NYC

If you’re struggling with a mental health condition, you may be eligible for FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act) leave. FMLA provides job-protected leave for up to 12 weeks per year for eligible employees who need time off for their own serious health condition or to care for a family member with a serious health condition.

At Nao Medical, we understand how important it is to get the care you need for your mental health. That’s why we offer a range of mental health services, including therapy and psychology, to help you manage your condition and improve your quality of life.

How to Get FMLA for Mental Health in NYC

If you’re considering taking FMLA leave for your mental health, there are a few things you need to know:

  • You must work for a covered employer and have worked for them for at least 12 months
  • You must have worked at least 1,250 hours in the 12 months before your leave starts
  • Your employer must have at least 50 employees within a 75-mile radius of your worksite
  • You must have a serious health condition that meets the criteria for FMLA

If you meet these requirements, you can request FMLA leave from your employer. You’ll need to provide medical certification from a healthcare provider, such as a therapist or psychologist, that verifies your need for leave due to your mental health condition.
