I have the option to file Disability at my current job, but I'm not sure what aid to ask for. I looked on askjan.org to see what resources I could specifically request, but it felt overwhelming. I don't know what would be worthwhile to try or where to start. any ideas?

      If you’re receiving mental healthcare, including from a therapist or a psychiatrist, you can ask them to point you in the direction of a peer advocate! They’re people who have lived experience w mental illness and are in recovery. They’ve been trained to navigate your state’s disability agencies, and they work alongside you to help get you what you need. Having a peer helped me a lot (also I know I sound like a billboard I’m in peer training myself but since I’m not certified I don’t wanna like. Give you bad advice. )
