Mental Health Conditions and Workers’ Comp Benefits
Obtaining workers’ comp benefits in Illinois for a mental health condition is not as easy as other states, due to the specific guidelines set out under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act and Occupational Diseases Act. However, this does not mean it is not possible. In most cases, there must be some sort of physical injury or occupational disease in conjunction with the mental health condition.
Mental health conditions include:
- PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)
