Can mental health conditions be covered under an L&I claim?

Yes.  Often, your life substantially changes after an injury.  You may not physically be able to exercise, partake in a hobby, contribute in your household, or pick up your young children.  When these significant life changes occur, it is common to suffer from a mental health condition.  When addressed and diagnosed by a mental health provider and related to your injury, a mental health condition can be allowed under an L&I claim.
