Genetic researchers kick-start schizophrenia research

There is no doubt that there is a specific stigma and a general misunderstanding surrounding mental illness, but one of the most important ways to diagnose, treat and potentially prevent mental illness is by engaging in discussions about it and turning to science to better understand it.

Senator has optimistic plan to expand Social Security disability

The interesting tie between chronic pain and depression

For many medical conditions, there is clear evidence that either supports or disproves a diagnosis. If someone has cancer, for example, doctors can run tests and find cancer cells. If someone becomes paralyzed, doctors can run tests and find damage to the spinal cord. When someone is in pain, there aren't always tests available that confirm or deny that someone is feeling pain. Even if there are physical signs of pain, it isn't always clear just how much pain a person is feeling. Perhaps this is one the reasons why some people doubt others' claims of chronic pain.

For these people, disability benefits make sense.
