Social Security Benefits for Depression/Other Mental Health Conditions | Pinellas Park Social Security Disability Lawyer

Being disabled does not always constitute a physical problem one may have. Depression and other mental health conditions can be very disabling and Social Security recognizes this.

Mental conditions, and in combination with physical problems, are considered by Social Security as grounds for finding someone disabled.

If you are suffering from a disabling mental condition the first step, and the most important, is to see a psychiatrist. Even though a primary care doctor can take care of the essentials by prescribing anti-depressants and a legitimate diagnosis of depression/other mental health conditions, Social Security gives more weight to the opinions and records of a psychiatrist.
