On Demand: SSI and Mental Health Disabilities

  • Public Benefits
  • Community Education/Outreach
  • Disability

When an individual with a mental health disability is trying to decide whether to apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) benefits, there are many questions to be considered. How will I prove to the Social Security Administration that I am disabled? What kind of treatment history do I need? What benefits do I qualify for?
