Nevada’s free mental health services are available for you if you have a mental illness or 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 SSD benefits, you must have medical evidence. Make sure you find a good doctor. Then, go to the doctor on a monthly basis. Your doctor will write progress notes about your mental symptoms.

For example, you will need evidence from a treating medical source, like a medical doctor. The medical evidence you provide should be about how your mental condition prevents you from working.

The evidence that you need will be the medical opinion of your treating counselor and doctor. Also, you will need the opinion of your doctor, psychologist, or other mental health professional.

You will also need to obtain progress notes from your mental health doctor and counselor. Progress notes are the notes your doctor or counselor write when you visit them. That evidence will be what the SSA reviews to see if they can pay you Social Security benefits.


The local Nevada SSA office will review your application. Then, they will forward it to the Las Vegas Disability Determination Services (DDS) office. There, a DDS worker will review your medical evidence.

They will also collect any medical records not in your file. The SSA will be looking for evidence that shows you have a severe mental condition that meets their rules. 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 care when you don’t have a job is a challenge. It is a good idea to find free mental health clinics and services, even if it is online therapy.

Online therapy is a great option. Some counselors have free online therapy. Especially if you have trouble leaving home due to anxiety. You can find free therapy or low cost mental therapy near your home. Here are a few Las Vegas, Nevada, medical health resources. They are low cost and free mental health services.

If mental health clinic services are not free, then ask them if they have a sliding scale. A sliding scale is payment based on your income. Some counselors offer payment based on your income, so that you can afford therapy. If you have health insurance, ask if there is a counselor who will accept payment through your insurance. You can also ask if your mental health counselor 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 do not have health insurance, then you can apply for Medicaid. Some clinics take Medicaid as a form of payment. Learn more about how to file for Medicaid benefits.


If you don’t have mental health evidence, then you cannot prove your mental condition exists. Therefore, you will lose your Social Security case. Be smart, get treatment. Don’t give up on treatment after a few months. Keep going. Go every two weeks and create a medical record of your mental health condition. Then you will win your benefits.

Many times, if you have a chronic physical condition, you become anxious and depressed. Just because your physical condition caused the mental symptoms doesn’t mean you don’t need treatment for the mental symptoms too. Get treatment. Medical evidence proves the mental condition exists and is part of why you can’t work. You need evidence from a doctor to win your case. But you need to create that evidence.


If you have a severe mental condition, then you will need to prove your claim to the Nevada SSA office. For this, you will need mental health evidence. For example, you may obtain SSD benefits in Nevada for Depression. Similarly, you can obtain benefits if you have treatment for Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

Many individuals suffer from Schizophrenia and win benefits. Also, you can win benefits for Intellectual Disorder. If you have one of these mental conditions, then you will need treatment from a doctor. A doctor is able to give you medications for these mental conditions.

There are other mental conditions that also qualify you for benefits if you cannot work. For example, you could have Borderline Personality Disorder. Additionally, you could have a Traumatic Brain Injury or Dementia.

Moreover, you may have a combination of mental conditions that prevent you from working. 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 can get treatment through Nevada’s local public mental health programs.


Nevada’s mental health system has three parts. Most public mental health resources are 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).

In order to receive mental health services, you will need to call them. You need to ask if they will help you for free, for a low cost payment program, or if they will take Medicaid. Below, you will find contact information for each DPBH clinic:

Additionally, many individuals have mental 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 being treated at a pain clinic. Pain clinics are good sources of health information. Many pain clinics have counselors and also support groups for their clients. For instance, here is a list of free and low cost mental health programs in Nevada:

Latino Community Resources in Mental Health

La Salud Mental En La Comunidad Latina


Our law firm has been helping clients in Nevada for over 13 years. We have won thousands of SSI and SSDI 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 low cost mental health services and clinics. If you need a doctor or counselor and don’t have money, then there are resources for you. For more resources, contact the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). You can also contact the Division of Public and Behavioral Health with a visit to the DPBH website.

Finally, if you need help with your SSD 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 lawyers will meet with you before your hearing with the SSA judge. Our Nevada attorneys will also prepare you for your hearing. You will know how to answer the Judge’s questions before you have your hearing before the Social Security Administration.


The point of seeking mental care is to comply with the treatment. Consistently visiting your doctor and taking your medications is what the judge is looking for in your medical records. If you have ongoing mental treatment, then it will help your case.

For example, going to the counselor for three months and then giving up, will not help you or your case. Neither will quitting your medications. Rather, ongoing treatment with mental health services  wins your SSD benefits.

Free mental health services are available in Nevada. There is also free therapy. Likewise, you can hire the best Nevada SSD attorney for free. Therefore, you have nothing to lose by calling us today. We offer a free review of your case. That means 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, then you will not owe us an attorney fee. That is right. No attorney fee until we win your case.


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 had a medical condition one year ago, they will only pay you starting today. Why? Because today is the first day of your application. Find out more here about filing for mental health SSD benefits in Nevada.

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 and you file an SSD application today, then you can only go back one year in time to get benefits. However, if you waited until today to file for benefits, then you lost at least one year of past due SSD benefits.


You do not need to worry about paying your attorney fee. Because we only charge you an attorney fee if we win your benefits. Also, we can often tell you over the phone if we can help you with your SSD or SSI case. We can’t help every single person who calls. But we will try to help you find the resources that you need.

We understand you don’t have a job. 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. If we take your case, then we think there is a chance we can win it. We want to win, just like you. Also, we want to be paid an attorney fee for our work. Since we have been in business for 30 years, you can see we win most of our cases. Take a chance on us.

In order to win benefits, you need to hire a law firm with experience. In the past 30 years, we have won over 20,000 SSD and SSI cases. Additionally, we have won over $100 million in ongoing and past due SSDI benefits for our clients. Hire the top Nevada Social Security attorneys.  Contact Cannon Disability Law today. We can help you obtain Nevada’s free and low cost mental health services. Also, we can help you win your benefits to replace your income.
