At The Bainbridge Firm, we understand the debilitating effects mental or psychological conditions can have on an individual's life. From our offices in Columbus and the surrounding Ohio communities, our attorneys work hard to get clients the Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits they need to pay for medical treatment and keep up with the daily costs of living.

Mental Conditions: Real Diseases With Debilitating Effects

The Social Security Disability system provides support to hardworking people whose permanent injuries and disabilities make it impossible to work. However, mental conditions, such as depression or PTSD can be difficult to prove.

Just because the physical effects of a mental condition are more difficult to see or prove, doesn't mean they are any less debilitating. Mental conditions often leave their victims with severe disabilities that make it impossible to maintain employment and earn a living. Common mental conditions that qualify for disability benefits include:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Intellectual disabilities
  • Personality disorders
  • Substance addiction
  • Autism
  • Development disorders
  • Fibromyalgia

We have been helping people in central and southern Ohio get Social Security Disability benefits for more than 50 years. Our attorneys are well-versed in local laws, and we know how to make the system work for you.

Our attorneys work closely with medical specialists, such as psychologists and psychiatrists as well as vocational experts to ensure the SSA understands the full nature and extent of your mental condition, and the impact it has on your ability to earn a living.
