social security disability benefits for mental conditions Archives

SSD benefits may be available for mental health conditions

Over the last several years more Americans have become aware of just how prevalent mental illness is in our country. Many people in North Carolina who are suffering from so-called minor mental health conditions, like depression and anxiety, are able to manage the symptoms of their illness by taking prescription medication and attending therapy sessions. However, there are some people who have mental health conditions that are much more serious. For these individuals, if they are unable to work because of the illness, they may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits for mental conditions.

What is schizophrenia?

In recent years, the American public has become increasingly aware of just how prevalent and serious mental health conditions are in this country. Millions of Americans suffer from such mental disorders as bipolar disorder, anxiety attacks and depression. Many people who live with these conditions are able to treat the issues through medication and therapy. However, some mental conditions are so serious that the individuals who are suffering with them are unable to go about their day-to-day life, and many are unable to work as a result. Schizophrenia is one of the most serious of mental illnesses.

A mental health condition could be a disability

When many of our readers in North Carolina think of a person who has a disability, they may think of a physical disability caused by an injury or illness. But what some people may not know is that some serious mental disorders can leave a person disabled too. And, just like physical disabilities, it may be possible to qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits for mental conditions.
