I was wondering if I can put my mental health issues and my emotional anxiety issues, can these issues be apart of a disability court hearing. Is having these issues part of a disability.
Can having emotional issues and mental health issues be brought up with a disability lawyer for part in a disability court hearing?
Yes. Mental impairments are frequently part of a claim for social security disability.
answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
Absolutely. However, medical/psychiatric/psychological evidence on the issue is extremely important. Just voicing complaints without appropriate treatment isn't likely to convince the ALJ/SSA that the condition is contributing to the disability.
