While it is the physical impairments that come to mind when we think about disabilities, there are many disabilities that impact individuals mentally. Those living with a mental disorder may not know initially that it is a mental disorder from which they are suffering. Individuals in New Jersey and elsewhere attempt to live with a mental impairment, not knowing what it is and whether it can be treated. For some, the mental disorder, diagnosed or not, can become debilitating. This is when individuals might seek options to help them live their life when his or her disability is preventing them from doing so.

Mental disorders such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder can impact individuals significantly. These mental disorders make it challenging to have relationships, carry out daily tasks and even go to work. When these mental disorders become so significant that it is impossible to lead a normal life, this is where Social Security disability could help out.
