Overcoming the challenge of proving a mental illness

Millions of Americans, including many here in Anaheim, suffer from certain maladies that are not as easy to identify as physical ailments. Yet, these mental conditions can be equally debilitating. If you suffer from a mental illness that prevents you from working, you may be able to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.

Like those with physical injuries, you will be required to provide a substantial amount of documentation regarding your condition with your application for benefits. It would be in your best interest to seek the advice and guidance of an attorney here in Anaheim who regularly practices in this area of law. He or she can guide you through the process and help you obtain the evidence you need in order to prove that you have a qualifying mental condition.

Anxiety-related disorders, psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia and affective disorders such as depression, along with personality disorders, are just some of the mental disorders that are eligible for SSDI benefits. Obtaining the proper records, mental assessments and mental health treatment resources that provide sufficient proof of your condition is often easier said than done without assistance. If even one document is missing or any part of the application is not properly completed, benefits can be denied.

Suffering from a mental illness can make even normal daily activities insurmountable and working can be nearly impossible. Attempting to navigate the SSDI application process alone might seem like climbing Mount Everest, but it does not have to be that way. Having a knowledgeable and compassionate attorney to advocate on your behalf could help eliminate errors that could delay your receipt of benefits.
