Harlan Still & Koch

Understanding SSD And Mental Health Disabilities

Most people think of disabilities as physical injuries or limitations. However, many mental health conditions can have as much impact as a physical impairment. At Harlan Still & Koch, we help clients throughout central Missouri seeking disability benefits for mental health conditions that interfere with their ability to work effectively.

Sometimes A Disability Is Not A Physical Impairment

The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes several mental health conditions that may be considered disabling. Our Columbia attorneys will help you organize your medical information and fill out all of the paperwork required by the SSA. Our experience includes assisting clients who have:

  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Other documented mental health conditions

Mental health conditions can be difficult to demonstrate because the full effects of your condition may be unseen or unnoticeable to the casual observer. We strive to help you accurately describe how your condition affects your day-to-day activities. We will also help you gather the proper medical evidence needed to build your claim successfully.

We Provide The Dedicated Support You Need

We are strong advocates for our clients, and our lawyers will help you through the entire process of applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and other disability benefits that may be available to assist you.
