I personally, had some experiences with emotional disorders. When I was 10 I had OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) in studying. I was very worried in the occasion, because the 5 th grade was coming and in Brazil (where I live, because I´m brazilian) this school grade used to be a difficuld grade.
I had an excelent teacher that gave some guidelines to my mom, to take me to a psycologist, and this was very good to me.
In other cases, it´s recommended to visit a psyquiatrist to take some medicine that can help to regulate biological issues such as: sleep, appetite and tireness.

The good news is that mental illnesses are treatable. Early recognition of mental health problems, referrals to the right resources (such as Employee and Family Assistance Plans), and adequate treatment can help people get on the path to recovery and go back to their usual work quickly. Employees can and do reach their full potential when they have the right supports in their life, including those at their workplace. Some mental health problems in the workplace can also be prevented when organizations take steps to create mentally healthy workplaces for all employees.
Telling a supervisor or member of your workplace’s human resources team about a diagnosis of any health problem is called disclosure.
Here are more tips for supporting a co-worker:
Ask how you can help—and respect your co-worker’s wishes.
Continue to include your co-worker in the workplace’s usual activities.
Depending on your relationship, you can still keep in touch with a co-worker who takes time off.
When a co-worker returns to work after time off due to a mental illness, make them feel welcome and appreciated. Saying nothing because you’re worried about saying the wrong thing can make your co-worker feel worse.
Advocate for healthy workplaces. Many wellness strategies are low-cost or no-cost, but they can still improve everyone’s well-being and build inclusive spaces
