Disability for Mental Disorders

Social Security has a set of disability listings for mental disorders, ranging from depression-related illness, anxiety-related disorders, and psychotic disorders to autism, ADHD and learning disabilities, and mental retardation (intellectual developmental disorder) and low IQ. The disability listings contain criteria that the disorders must meet to be considered disabling. But even if your disorder doesn't "meet" the listing, if you can prove you can't do even a simple, unskilled job due to emotional, psychiatric, or brain-related problems, you could get disability benefits.
