What type of mental illnesses qualify for SSD or SSI?

Unfortunately, there are no specific mental health symptoms that guarantee approval of a claim. Social Security will take a similar approach to mental impairments as they do with physical impairments. They carefully review a person's functional capacity to work, regardless of their impairments, rather than granting benefits for set illnesses.

There are, however, common illnesses that tend to qualify, for example:

You must be able to prove that you not only have the mental illness, but also that it prevents you from working. If any of these illnesses, or similar ones, affect you or a loved to the point that you cannot support yourself with consistent income, you may be able to qualify for SSD or SSI.
