One in Four Social Security Disability Payments are for Mental Illness

Despite greater awareness about mental illness, it continues to be misunderstood and often maligned. Recently a mental health expert shared these facts about mental illness with a civic group in Bogalusa, La.:

 

  • One in three Americans ages 15-55 will at some point develop a mental illness.
  • One in five experiences a diagnosable mental condition in any given year.
  • Mental disorders are often exasperated by a chronic medical condition such as cardiovascular disease or obesity.
  • Mental illness is more common than cancer, diabetes, heart disease or any other major public health concern.
  • Psychiatric disorders are the number one reason for hospital admissions.
  • About one in four Social Security Disability payments are made to people with mental illness.

If you have a severe mental disorder that prevents you from working, you could be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. To make sure your claim is handled correctly, you should consult an experienced disabilities benefits attorney.
