Mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, anxiety or depression may cause havoc with a person’s social, personal and professional life. Many New Jersey residents have suffered through prolonged periods of unemployment and financial adversity arising out of a mental illness disability.
State authorities have provided Social Security benefits to some of those who qualify due to certain mental conditions. Others, however, are still in need of assistance.
Americans aged 15 to 44 constitute the lion’s share of the workforce in the country. Some of these workers have also been diagnosed with mental illness at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, many patients suffering from such mental disorders were not awarded much needed Social Security Disability benefits for mental conditions.
Many suffering from mental disorders cannot find employment or even if they do find employment may not be able to sustain employment for long periods of time. Additionally, counseling and other forms of therapy required to treat certain mental illnesses may lead to heavy and prolonged medical expenses. All these factors may add to the financial woes of people suffering from mental disorders.
