Nevada’s free mental health services are available for you, if you have a mental illness or a mental health condition and need treatment. Below, you will find a list of services that can help you with your mental health. In order to win disability benefits, you must have medical evidence. For example, you will need evidence from a treating medical source, like a licensed therapist or medical doctor. Most importantly, the medical evidence you provide should be about how your mental illness or mental condition prevents you from working.

The evidence that you need will be the medical opinion of your treating counselor or therapist. Also, you will need the opinion of your psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health professional. You will also need to obtain your therapist or other mental health provider’s progress notes. Progress notes are the notes that your doctor or mental health counselor writes when you visit them. That evidence will be what the SSA reviews to see if you have a qualifying disability for Social Security disability benefits.


The local Nevada SSA office will review your application for completeness. Then, they will forward it to the Las Vegas Disability Determination Services (DDS) office. There, a Claims Examiner will review your medical evidence. They will also collect any medical records not in your file. The examiner will be looking for medical evidence that shows you have a disabling medical condition. Letters from your treating sources will help. As will progress notes that describe your mental symptoms.

In order to receive benefits, you must show you receive ongoing mental health treatment. Paying for mental healthcare when you don’t have a job is a major challenge. It is a good idea to look for free mental health clinics and mental health services, even if it is free online therapy. Sometimes online therapy is a great option, especially if you have trouble leaving home due to anxiety or agoraphobia. You can find free therapy or low cost mental therapy near your home. Here are a few Las Vegas, Nevada, disability resources. They are low cost and free mental healthcare services.

If a psychiatric services or mental health clinic services are not free, then ask if they have a sliding scale. A sliding scale is payment based on your income. Some licensed therapists offer payment based on your income, so that you can afford therapy. If you have health insurance, ask if there is a therapist who will accept payment through your insurance. You can also ask if your mental health therapist will accept cash.

Mental health care and and medication management is just as important as physical care. For example, you wouldn’t walk around with a broken arm, without putting your arm in a cast. Why? Because it would be too painful. Similarly, you shouldn’t carry on in your daily life without getting treatment for your mental illness. Mental illness is a serious issue, just like a broken arm or leg. Therefore, you should get treatment for it.


If you have a disabling mental or psychological condition, then you will need to prove your claim to the Nevada SSA office with supporting mental health evidence. For example, you may obtain disability benefits in Nevada for Depression and Bipolar Disorder. Similarly, you can obtain benefits if you have treatment for Generalized Anxiety Disorder.  Many individuals suffer from Schizophrenia and this is also a qualifying disability. Also, you can win disability benefits for Intellectual Disorder. If you have one of these mental health issues, then you will need treatment from a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is able to prescribe medication for these severe mental health conditions.

There are other mental illnesses that you may have that also qualify you for disability benefits if you cannot work. For example, you could have Borderline Personality Disorder. Additionally, you could carry the diagnosis of Traumatic Brain Injury, or any number of other mental conditions. Moreover, there are people who have a combination of a number of these mental illnesses. If you can’t leave your house, ask for online mental health treatment.You may be one of those people with a severe mental illness who qualifies for Nevada’s local public mental health programs.


Nevada’s mental health system has three parts. Most public mental health resources are concentrated in the northern part of the state in and around Reno and in the southern part of the state in Las Vegas. Northern Nevada is served by Northern Nevada Adult Mental Health Services (NNAMHS) and Southern Nevada is served by Southern Nevada Adult Mental Health Services (SNAMHS). The rest of Nevada’s rural clinics are run by Rural Counseling and Supportive Services (RCSS). Each of these organizations is a unit within the state Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH).

Additionally, many individuals have psychiatric conditions that affect their overall physical health. In that case, a claim for SSD will need to show you receive treatment for physical issues too. As a result, you will also need to obtain medical information from your primary doctor. Perhaps you are attending treatment at a pain clinic. Pain clinics are also good sources of health information. Many pain clinics also have therapists and support groups for their clients. For example, here are some of the Las Vegas disability resources for free and low-cost mental health programs.

Cannon Disability Law has been representing disability claimants in Nevada for over 13 years. We have won thousands of SSI and SSDI disability cases and we have also won cases on appeal. We also believe Nevada has one of the best free and low cost medical support systems. If you need mental health services, Nevada has them. Nevada’s resources also include inpatient psychiatric care, low cost psychiatric services, and discounted mental health clinics. If you need a doctor or free counseling services and don’t have money, then there are resources for you. For additional resources, contact the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). You can also contact the Division of Public and Behavioral Health at (775)684-5943 or visit their DPBH website.

Finally, if you need help with your disability claim, hire our team. Hire us because our team will help you file your application. Also, we will appeal any denials from the SSA. Our representatives will meet with you before your hearing with the disability judge. Our Nevada disability representatives will also prepare you for your hearing. You will know how to answer the Judge’s questions before you have your administrative hearing before the Social Security Administration.


The point of seeking mental healthcare is to comply with the treatment. Consistently attending therapist appointments and taking your medications is what the judge is looking for in your medical records. If you have ongoing treatment, then it will help your case. For example, going to the counselor for three months and then quitting, will not help you or your case. Neither will quitting your medications on your own. It is ongoing treatment with mental health services that helps win your disability case.

Free mental healthcare is available in Nevada. Likewise, you can hire the best Nevada SSD attorney for free. Therefore, you have nothing to lose by contacting us today. We offer a free consultation and we will answer your questions without charge. Also, there is no upfront free if we accept your case. Additionally, if we do not win your case, you will not owe us an attorney fee. That is right.


Every day you wait to apply for SSD and SSI benefits is a day you lose money. Payable benefits, whether it is SSI or SSD, are tied to the date of your application. For example, if you file for SSI benefits today, even if you have a disabling impairment one year ago, they will only pay you starting today. Why? Because today is the first day of your application.

Likewise, if you file an SSD application today, you might win SSD benefits. However, it is only possible to go back in time for benefits one year prior to the date of your application. And, you must not have been working. So, let’s do an example. If you have been off work for two years due to your disability and you file an SSD application today, then you can only go back one year in time to get benefits. If you waited until today to file for benefits, then you lost at least one year of back due money.


We only charge you an attorney fee if we win you benefits. Also, we can often tell you over the phone if we can help you with your SSD or SSI disability case. We can’t help every single person who calls. Because, not everyone is eligible for benefits. But we do try to help the majority of people who call us. We understand you don’t have a job. Therefore, you don’t have money to pay us. That is why we don’t charge any attorney fee upfront. If we take your case, then we are willing to work on it for free for two years. Our goal is to win. If you qualify for SSI benefits, then we fight for them. Likewise, we do the same for your SSD benefits.

If we take your case, then we think there is a chance we can win it. No one wants to work for free. We want to win, just like you, and be paid an attorney fee for our work. Since we have been in business for 30 years, you can see we win the majority of our cases. Take a chance on us.

In order to win disability benefits, you need to hire a disability firm with experience. In the past 30 years, we have won over 20,000 SSD cases. Additionally, we have won over $100 million in ongoing and past-due disability benefits for our clients. Hire the top Nevada Social Security disability attorneys.  Contact Cannon Disability Law today.
