Common Mental Health Concerns
Accidents and injuries can trigger a host of mental health conditions. Workers’ compensation benefits cover both mental health conditions that arose from a single traumatic event or that developed after years of working in an unfavorable working environment.
Several of the most common mental health concerns covered under workers’ compensation include:
- Anxiety and stress in the work environment or triggered by a single distressing event.
- Depression resulting from an injury that alters your quality of life and threatens your career.
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the wake of a serious accident, an upsetting workplace event or the effects of sustaining a work-related injury.
