Raising awareness for employees who are suffering from workplace mental health issues in Michigan.

Mental health is an important issue in workers’ comp that does not get much attention. We see individuals struggling every day. This shows up in frantic telephone calls to our office and conflicts with loved ones.

Many of these people refuse to seek professional help because of the stigma and potential to lose their jobs. We hope this blog post helps raise awareness and encourages employees to speak with their doctors.

Work Stress

A person can experience a mental breakdown from their job. This is covered under workers’ comp if arising out of actual work events and reasonably grounded in fact. Medical treatment and lost wages should be paid. We frequently see this occur when an employee is bullied by their manager or supervisor.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD is a serious medical condition arising from a traumatic event that should be diagnosed and treated by a mental health professional. Common symptoms include anxiety, flashbacks, and nightmares. We have represented individuals who simply could not re-enter the workplace despite full recovery from any physical disability.

Depression

A work accident can end a person’s career and result in lifetime medical problems. Many of our clients experience moods that are beyond just feeling sad. Depression is a mood disorder that should be treated. We have seen many clients struggle with a sense of loss because of their work accident. Speak with a doctor if experiencing these feelings.
