Do you ever think about life before your job? Are Sundays particularly difficult because you know that you have to go back in to work on Monday? Have you turned into someone that you don’t really recognize anymore? There is a difference between having the Monday blues and working in a toxic environment which makes you feel depressed and anxious. Sure, everyone has worked in a place that doesn’t serve you good energy, but did that place ever drive you to the point where you physically unable to get out of bed? Has it driven you to lost interest in not only your job but your social life?

Living with depression and anxiety is not fun especially when they are new feelings to you. California has recognized that mental health is just as important as physical health. They recognize that a person struggling with mental health needs just as much attention as someone who is dealing with a  broken leg or arm. Mental health needs a doctor as well as a treatment plan and time to work through that treatment plan. Long-standing work stress can manifest into mental and physical ailments. California recognizes that these mental disorders can negatively affect someone’s work and they are worthy of a workers’ compensation claim as long as you have worked for your employer for at least 6 months.

Even though California recognizes the importance of highlighting mental stress at work, it can be difficult to prove. There is a higher threshold of evidence needed to prove that you are suffering from mental stress in the workplace. This means that the insurance companies will be looking for extensive paperwork detailing your psychiatric history and will be relying heavily on your physician’s notes. If you experiencing strong emotional challenges that are creating mental disorders then please be sure that you are documenting all your doctors and therapists appointments.

Mental stress symptoms are very individual. Some experience nervousness, shaking, unable to sleep,  loss of interest in work or social outings, alcohol or drug abuse as a way of self-medicating, mood changes, or severe fears or feelings of guilt. This shift in personality may be gradual or fast. Contributing factors are workplaces where employees feel oppressed; they feel like they can’t make decisions for themselves or they are pressured to do more work than what is required alongside feeling as if their job does not matter.
