According to medical and mental health professionals, the holiday season can be an especially hard time of year for individuals who struggle with mental conditions, like depression. As stresses mount and concerns weigh heavily on the minds of Oklahoma residents, those who deal with mental illnesses may experience elevated symptoms and issues related to their conditions. Those extra symptoms may lead them to engage in dangerous and uncharacteristic behaviors that can put them in harm’s way.

Individuals who struggle to stay ahead of their depression, anxiety and other diagnosed mental health conditions do not have to fight their battles on their own. Depending upon how much their illnesses encroach into their daily lives, they may be able to pursue disability support from the Social Security Administration.
