What can be done if one's coworkers laugh at them for their mental illness?
What shall I do if my manager and the rest of my work mates laugh at me because I take pills for my mental condition? I have stated on my medical form that I suffer from mental illness and take medication for it. I dont feel like coming back to work anymore...

NQ, do you have an HR department? If so explain the situation to them and ask them to deal with this situation.

NQ. Your company may have an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). All confidential but anything deemed worthy of reporting will be sent to HR. Additionally, your HR department may have a whistle blowing policy (or safeguarding policy). Look in there for referrals and complaints process. I assume you have taken the normal channel of exploring options with your line manager?
