A lifestyle break of between 4 and 52 weeks can be offered to give someone time out to deal with a personal issue outside of work. The best example that springs to mind is to care for a family member during a serious health period. This is not the only reason though. This saves you from going through the long term absence process at the same time as dealing with a difficult personal issue. At the end of this process it's going to be difficult to return to work. It's a long time to be out of the business and anyone would feel stress and anxiety at coming back. Knowing what you are coming back to might help though. The best thing to do is to contact work and ask if you can talk this through with someone, your manager may be the best person. You could ask for a phased return to work, so you come back on lower hours and build up over a few weeks. I think you need to talk to work before deciding you are not fit to return. If you have a plan to come back to it does make it easier. The thought of coming back is often worse that actually coming back.
