Daily Effects Of Mental Illness
The daily toll of a mental illness can be overwhelming, making it impossible to maintain employment. Many people who suffer from mental health impairments are entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, but obtaining those benefits is a complex and time-consuming process.
I am Trevor A. Brown, an SSDI lawyer serving clients in Dalton, Atlanta and throughout northwest Georgia. If you suffer from a mental illness, such as anxiety or depression, I can help you pursue the SSDI or SSI benefits you need and deserve. I have more than 10 years of experience and a proven record of success obtaining positive results for my clients.
Not Visible, But No Less Devastating
Mental illnesses often have no visible effects but are no less devastating than physical disabilities. Mental illness can disrupt sleep, impair concentration and make it difficult to interact with others. For some people, mental illness makes it difficult to leave the house, let alone hold down a job.
I understand, and I can help. I handle SSDI and SSI claims and appeals for people suffering from a broad range of impairments, including mental health conditions such as:
- Anxiety disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
In order to prevail in your claim, you must provide documented medical evidence of your disability and how it affects your ability to work. You must receive treatment from a mental health professional and follow your doctor’s orders.
I know what evidence is likely to lead to a successful SSDI or SSI claim. I can help you through all stages of the process, from your initial claim to your final appeal.
