Disability Benefits for Depression
Social Security Disability Lawyers
Do you suffer from Depression?
Depression is a mental health disorder that affects adults as well as children. Depressive disorders can manifest in the form of major depression, dysthymia, adjustment disorder, seasonal affective disorder, manic depression, or bipolar disorder, to name a few. Depression can range from mild to severe, and may cause feelings of hopelessness, guilt, and worthlessness, restlessness, loss of interest in hobbies, fatigue, decreased energy, sleep disturbances, weight changes, thoughts of suicide or homicide, decreased concentration, or irritability.
Social Security will assess how depression affects your maximum mental ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security must consider the nature and extent of your depression, and how this condition restricts your ability to carry out activities of daily living, your ability to maintain social functioning, and your ability to maintain concentration, persistence, or pace in a competitive work environment. Social Security will also assess whether or not you are able to make simple work-related judgments, your ability to adapt to changes in your work setting, and your ability to handle work pressures.
