Was Your Long Term Disability for Mental Illness Denied?

Mental illnesses can significantly impact a person's life and their interactions with others. Common mental health disorders include Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The causes of mental illness disorders are multifaceted, involving biological, psychological, and environmental factors. While the symptoms of mental illness are primarily psychological, some disorders can also manifest physical symptoms. For example, depression may lead to weight loss, fatigue, and loss of libido, while eating disorders can result in malnutrition. The symptoms associated with these disorders can vary in type and severity, with approximately 5% of individuals experiencing symptoms that significantly impact their daily lives.

Seeking proper diagnosis and treatment for mental health disorders is a vital step towards finding relief and managing symptoms. Medical professionals are equipped to accurately diagnose and provide effective treatments such as therapy and medication.
