Birmingham Disability Lawyer Mental Illness

Birmingham Disability Lawyer Mental Illness: In a recent article in the Washington Post, it was reported that for persons who suffer with a serious mental illness, the unemployment rate is 80%. This is due to several problems. First, many of the mental health services available to those who suffer with mental illness have experienced a severe decrease in funding during the current recession. The recession has also sapped financial resources those effected by mental disorders and their families, making it more difficult to receive the necessary treatment to allow them to return to gainful employment. There is also the problems associated with the disorders themselves
The Social Security Administration provides disability benefits (SSDI benefits and SSI benefits) to people with disabilities related to psychological problems, whether the problem is congenital or arose later in life, and provides a means for those people to seek the medical treatment they require so they can get better.
