Is it illegal to cause emotional and mental abuse to a person who disclosed information to you?

Question Details: I disclosed mental health information to a roommate and what I do when I go through an episode. I leave and seek help then I return after so I will not affect them. I informed my roommate the date I would return and before that happened she decided to throw away all my belongings and then disclose my mental health information to co-workers. Then used the mental health information to purposefully trigger an episode before the agreed upon date was reached. I paid all bills, I had an open point of contact, I did not damage anything. The explanation as to way was that I did not help her clean and I should go to a psych ward.
