Mental Illness Disability Benefits

There has been a long standing and still existing stigma that mental illnesses are different from physical impairments. However, this is not true. A mental illness or disorder can be just as disabling as any physical disease or condition. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a disability as either a "physical or mental impairment" that substantially limits a person's major life activities.

Mental illness and diseases include:

  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Post-partum depression
  • Mood disorders
  • Schizophrenia
  • Personality disorders
  • Mental retardation

Our experienced and skilled SSD attorneys can help you file a claim for SSDI/SSI benefits based on your mental illness. We will be there for you every step of the way and even through any appeals.
