You would need to be able to demonstrate that whatever condition you're suffering from was caused by work.

If you are suffering from anxiety and/or depression due to work, you would need to go to a doctor and be diagnosed with depression and anxiety, and you would need there to be a link between the condition and your work environment.

You would then need to inform your employer about your condition and request to file a workers' compensation claim.
