Cognitive, Psychological and Psychiatric Mental Health Issues and SSD
At Binder & Binder®, we represent people who suffer from mental health issues that affect them so seriously that they cannot work. 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 suffering from many different mental health issues, including the ones listed below:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Bipolar disorder
- Depression, severe depression and major depressive disorder
- Anxiety / panic attacks
- Agoraphobia (an anxiety disorder involving fear of unfamiliar places)
- Developmental disabilities
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Personality disorders (also called character disorders)
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
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. At Binder & Binder®, we know the criteria that the Social Security Administration evaluates. Our advocates can help you gather records of regular treatment and organize them in a way that is likely to help you win Social Security Disability benefits.
