One of the major goals we constantly try to work toward at Canadian Disability Benefits is the elimination of the stigma so often associated with mental illness in today’s society. With very few rare exceptions, people whose lives are affected by an untreated mental illness do not choose to do so voluntarily. Between the high costs associated with effective treatment and the stigma attached to admitting they need help, countless Canadians continue to suffer in silence. Thankfully, there is another option. The Canadian Disability Tax Credit program can provide you with up to $35,000 in benefits to help offset the cost of treatment and we can help make sure you receive that money as quickly and painlessly as possible.
What is Mental Illness?
Mental illness is a generic term used to describe any one of the countless disabilities which primarily affect a person’s brain or mind as opposed to their physical body. While there is frequently overlap between the two categories and many mental illnesses do in fact have physical symptoms associated with them, the underlying cause must be psychological in nature.
As with physical disabilities, mental illness can refer to an extremely wide range of disorders and conditions which vary in severity and may be something a person is born with or something they acquire later in life. Some of the most common forms of mental illness include:
- Eating Disorders
- Closed head injuries and other brain damage
- And many more…
Symptoms of Mental Illness
While the symptoms of mental illness are different in each individual case and are nearly limitless in their scope, there are some general principles which we can look at for the purpose of this page and the Canadian Disability Tax Credit program. As previously stated, in its simplest form a mental illness can be defined as any condition which chiefly stems from and affects a person’s mental functions.
The specifics of how the person’s life is affected by their disability and the severity to which they are affected are not the most important considerations when applying for Canadian Disability Benefits. The thing which is most important to those of us at Canadian Disability Benefits when reviewing your claim is merely the question of whether or not you’re experiencing significant hardships as a result of your disorder over an extended period of time. If the answer to that question is yes, then we will work tirelessly on your behalf to retrieve the maximum amount of Canadian Disability Benefits to which you’re entitled.
