On January 15, 2015, we had a lock down at the school were I work. My principal send me with police officers to one of the classrooms. I was not aware of anything that was going on, once there I was surprised by other police officers pulling there guns as well as squad team with rifles. Later on I found out that the reason why she send me is because the Assistant Principal refuse to go. This is not the first time that she has refused to go and I have been send with police officers. I'm just a secretary. Due to the incident I am now on medication for mixed anxiety and depressive disorder, as well as seeing a Psychologist. The school I work at has no cameras, no security and that same day earlier in the day I had informed my principal that the side door was unlock. Carmen Padilla

Due to the incident my diagnosis is Mixed anxiety and depressive disorder ICD-9: 300.4: Dysthymic disorder

Mixed anxiety and depressive disorder ICD:9: 300.4: Dysthymic Idsorder

BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOTHERAPY REFERRAL

This is what the doctor stated as Diagnosis on the referral order.

I see. Thank you for clarifying this for me, Maria.
Illinois worker's comp does typically cover mental conditions which are caused by an employee's working conditions, so it would be best to file a WC claim against the employer.
Here is a link which provides information about this for your reference:
http://www.fishmanlaw.com/blog/mental-illness-illinois-workers-compensation-law/
Through the WC program, you are normally compensated for time missed from work due to your injury as well as for any permanent disability but employers normally contest such claims, so it would be best to retain a local WC attorney to represent you on a contingency fee basis so there is no fee to you unless they prevail on your behalf.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate my service when I have answered your questions so I will be compensated for my time assisting you. Thank you!
