Welfare benefits & mental Illness
This page looks at the different benefits that someone who is unwell may be able to claim. The government is making changes to the welfare benefits system.
- You may be able to claim benefits if you are too unwell to work, on a low income or have care or mobility needs.
- We suggest you get your benefits checked if you have a change in circumstances. This will make sure you get what you are entitled to.
- If you have difficulties with benefits you should get advice and support from a welfare rights adviser.
