If your employers employs more than 100 people then they are required to have FMLA available. One requirement is 1,250 hours worked in 12 months preceding leave start date.

All it takes to get approved is a Medical Certification to be completed by a physician. It would federally protect your job during your absence.

If your symptoms are severe enough that they prevent you from performing the material and substantial duties of your job, you could also qualify for Short Term Disability. This would provide you with compensation during your leave.

Could you get written off sick? I don’t know how this works where you live, but in the UK people can get a doctor’s note for several weeks/months off for stress or other mental health issues. I also know people who have taken several months of unpaid leave; some even got several months of paid leave.

If you’re at the point of quitting, you should talk to your manager or HR, especially if your work is contributing to your mental health issues.

You should also consider the impact on your long term career prospects of not addressing your mental health issues now.

You'll probably be okay. People who get fired for gross incompetence in less time than that manage to get back on their feet so you can too.
