A common issue afflicting people in Kissimmee is mental illness. Since the problems a person might be having don't show up on an X-ray or CAT scan, they're often dismissed as in their heads. They are, but not in the derogatory way that is often meant. Mental conditions are real and affective disorders have certain criteria for the person suffering from it to receive Social Security disability benefits for mental conditions. Knowing these criteria before filing can be the key to receiving approval.
