Mental health problems can be devastating. Whether you are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or a host of other medical conditions, performing day-to-day tasks can be overwhelming. Obtaining employment may simply not be an option.
Unfortunately, stigma still surrounds mental illness. While medical professionals have long recognized the serious and disabling consequences of mental illnesses, the public can still act as if mental illness is not real.
It doesn’t help that an accurate diagnosis regarding mental illness can be difficult to come by for many people, particularly those without any financial resources or a support network.
Yet mental illnesses are serious medical conditions that can prohibit a person from working. As such, the Social Security Administration recognizes that mental illness can be disabling and that individuals diagnosed with certain conditions are eligible to obtain Social Security Disability benefits.
Obtaining SSDI Can Be Complex, Especially For Mental Illnesses
Establishing the documentation necessary to qualify for SSDI benefits is difficult with any medical condition; it is even more so with mental afflictions. At The Law Offices of Arnold S. Levine, L.P.A., we will help clients file complete and accurate claims with the Social Security Administration to obtain disability benefits for mental illnesses. We also help with appeals when a claim is denied.
We want all of our clients to improve their financial, physical and mental health. A part of that is encouraging our clients to get proper diagnosis and treatment. Too often, a mental illness is left untreated. Our lawyers can provide you with guidance as you seek medical opinions and treatment.
