Chronic depression, OCD, anxiety, panic attack disorders, cuts on wrist, ankles. Treatment options for poor mental health?

Hi, If you are diagnosed with depression , OCD , and anxiety/panic attack disorder are you considered disabled? My girlfriend was told she suffered from these things about 5yrs ago. Shes 20 now and says it started when she was very young. She will not get anything from her doctor saying so because she doesn t want to be put on medication. We have been together for about 3 years and I love her. I recently found old cuts on her wrist and ankles that I guess she covered with makeup. I want to help her.

For your information, the listed mental conditions are very rare to occur together. Over and above your girl friend is just 20. These conditions are very problematic and should be treated to the core.

Regarding disability. These conditions alone cannot be a case of disability. Each state government has different means of measuring mental disabilities. Please consult a civil psychiatrist in your state for more details.
