How does Social Security go about looking at mental health problems like Depression, Anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?
There are four (4) domains which SSA evaluates in looking at the functional limitations created by a cognitive or/and mental health issue. These involve: 1) understanding, remembering, or applying information; 2) interacting with others; 3) ability to concentrate, persist or maintain pace; and 4) ability to adapt or manage oneself. These involve your ability to understand, remember and carry out instructions. Your ability to show up for work each day in a full time job and keep up with the work. You would also to expected to respond appropriately to supervisors, co-workers, maybe the general public depending on the kind of job and to handle work pressures or stress in a work setting.
