Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello Chadd and thanks for asking JA. Most states have different laws about disability. The person that can put you on disability in California is your Primary Doctor. Make an appointment to she him or her and she will give you an assessment or refer you to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist or your doctor can put you on disability and you can notify your job that you will be on disability. If you feel that this is a psychiatric emergency please go to the emergency room you will get help right away.
I don't have a primary doctor I currently visit, what kind of doctor should I search for, or rather any doctor? I reside in Illinois currently, are the rules the same? I'm trying to understand the whole disability part, I know folks go on disability for physical injuries which gives the doctor an ideaon how long to keep the patient on disability. How can the doctor gauge how long to keep a psychological case on disability before it's considered ok to work again?
I know I have a lot of questions I just need to know what I'm attempting is all.
When you get a moment could you please address my latest questions?
