#Depression And #Anxiety- How We Can #Help
Anxiety and Depression are often said to be two sides of the same coin. Some people who have severe depression have severe depressive symptoms, such as crying spells, sadness, loss of interest in activities or hobbies, wanting to stay away from friends and family members, and thoughts of suicide. Anxiety can also be a manifestation of Depression. Anxiety presents symptoms such as racing thoughts, inability to sleep, irritability, lack of focus, confusion, and panic attacks. An individual can have one or all of these symptoms and be diagnosed with a Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depression, or even Bipolar Disorder. Bipolar Disorder includes high and low symptoms. Sometimes the individual may be very depressed and unable to leave the house and other times they may be manic, buying things they can’t afford or staying up all night cleaning.
How can we help you if you have symptoms of either Anxiety and/or Depression? One of the main things that we can do if you have severe mental health impairments that prevent you from working is we can help you apply for disability benefits. Many people think that applying for disability benefits means that you can never return to work again. However, oftentimes, people who receive the proper treatment and medications are able to return to the workforce after a period of time. Even if you plan on receiving treatment for your mental health issues and then returning to work, we can help you apply for the benefits that are rightfully yours during a period of disability. As long as you have been off work for 12 months due to your disabling mental health impairments, you are entitled to be paid benefits during that time period.
If you start your application for benefits with us, we can submit the information that is needed in your case upfront, so that you can be awarded benefits, even if you are able to return to work at a later date. Please give us a call and let us help you with your application. We are available to answer your questions about Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income benefits, and Depression and Anxiety. Contact Cannon Disability Law a chance to put our experience to work for you.
