Have a Mental Disability That Leaves You Unable to Work? Apply for Social Security

At our Salt Lake City, Utah law firm, we represent people who suffer from mental health issues and who need SSD or SSI benefits. We know that our clients would rather be working, and we understand the struggles they face. Our goal is to get them much needed Social Security Disability benefits so they can make ends meet.

We represent people who suffer from mental health issues that affect them so seriously that they cannot work. These may include the following:

  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder/manic depressive disorder
  • Affective disorder
  • Anxiety disorders such as anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder
  • Personality disorders
  • Autism and autism spectrum disorders, including Asperger’s syndrome
  • Low educational levels and cognitive disorders, including developmental disability

If you cannot work because of mental health issues and would like to apply for Social Security Disability benefits, you should know that disability claims are approved or denied by the SSA based on your medical records. Because of this, it is important to keep seeing your physician or psychiatrist for regular treatment. We can collect necessary records for you to make sure that your benefits application is complete and supported by medical evidence.

According to the Social Security Administration, a “disability” can be a physical or emotional matter—or some combination of both. We understand the pain-depression cycle—that chronic pain leads to depression, which in turn makes it harder to deal with the pain.
