Is mental health issues considered good cause to quit a job while collecting unemployment? California. ?

I “abandoned” my job after being hospitalized for 3 days in a mental institution, so basically I quit. Cause I was there. I was having suicidal thoughts and behaviors and panic attacks. Will I lose my benefits? I lost one job due to covid19 and I picked up a part time that triggered me. I also don’t want to return to this job because of how it affected me. I work in a nursing home and am anxious when people die and just scared of death.  What can I do?

    You need to discuss this with your local unemployment office.

    You will need a proper diagnosis from a licensed psychiatrist
