Depression and Other Disabling Mental Health Disorders
Social Security disability claims for mental illness are difficult to win. You will need solid documentation from mental health professionals and the legal assistance from a qualified representative who knows how to handle these cases. Severe depression and other mental conditions can make the work you once loved impossible to perform. How can you deal with customers or coworkers when your illness robs you of your ability to think clearly or control your emotions?
Contact the office of Social Security Claims Specialists, Inc. We have specialized training and years of experience in helping claimants receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits for depression and other disabling mental and behavioral health conditions.
Benefits Denied? We Can Help.
Call the office of Russell W. Brown & Associates
Over the years, we have helped thousands of clients receive disability benefits for all types of mental illnesses, including:
- Clinical Depression
- Bipolar illness
- Anxiety Disorders
- Organic brain dysfunction ("brain damage")
- Personality disorders
- Mental retardation
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Our Social Security Disability representatives can help you file a new application for SSDI benefits, or appeal a benefits denial based on your mental or behavioral health conditions. Our skilled and knowledgeable staff is trained to recognize the complex intersection of physical and mental health conditions. Our office will connect clients with mental health professionals who can run the right tests and provide the proper documentation of your functional capability and disability. We must show that the condition prevents you from holding any job, even if you are "able-bodied."
Disability is Depressing
Many people are opposed to seeing a psychiatrist or psychologist. You may have a prescription for antidepressants or other medications from your regular doctor, but a Social Security judge will not approve and SSDI mental illness claim without a qualified diagnosis from a psychiatrist or psychologist. Chronic, clinical depression can be a natural reaction to a disabling physical injury. The symptoms of depression interact with and complicate your physical conditions. Depression and other mental illnesses can exacerbate the pain and decrease one's ability to cope with other disabling illnesses and injuries.
If your application for Social Security Disability benefits was denied because the medical records did not support approval based on your physical condition alone, we can work with your doctor to explain how your chronic depression has aggravated your physical illness.
