How do you best approach job performance conversations with an employee that struggles from known mental health issues? Many Managers appear to be afraid to have these conversations where there are known mental health concerns - fear of inducing further mental health issues, fear of inducing self-harm, or just fear of being seen as not empathetic to the employee's struggle. What is the right balance? How would you have wanted to have this conversation?
