Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
That is a decision only youand your husband can make, and ultimately him. I would say though it would be worth looking into and thinking about.Something to consider though is the difficulty in being declared disabled. You would need to talk to a lawyer and probably an MD and psychologist to find out if you possibly qualify. Even then it could be a long drawn out process.On the positive side though, there are programs of employment and training available for the disabled that likely aren't available unless he is declared disabled (though I'm not sure how his prison record would affect that). Then there is the income and benefits that come with drawing disability.As I said, the decision is your's, but I believe it would be worth discussing. I hope that was helpful. Let me know if you have further questions.
