Belleville, Illinois, May 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Allsup, a leading provider of SSDI representation, return to work, veterans disability appeals and healthcare insurance services, is proud to once again be a sponsor of NAMICon 2023, in person, May 24-27, 2023, in Minneapolis and virtually, June 6-8, 2023.

This first in-person convention since 2019 is designed to bring people who are passionate about mental health together to meet advocates and learn about promising research and best practices. This year’s theme is “Together for Mental Health.”

T.J. Geist, principal advocate at Allsup, said, “For many years, Allsup has enthusiastically supported the National Alliance on Mental Illness in its mission to provide advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives.”

Mental illness ranks among the top 10 conditions that can qualify someone for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, Geist explained. “Together, we can create more awareness, reduce stigma, improve education, and boost vital access to effective treatment and financial solutions,” Geist said. “Our combined efforts will go a long way to ensure people with mental health conditions can build better lives.”

In 39 years, Allsup has helped more than 375,000 individuals with disabilities, including those with severe mental health disorders, receive SSDI benefits. Allsup now offers SSDI representation with its exclusive Disability Financial Solutions™ to help claimants find the right resources to improve their financial situation, such as reducing debt, household costs and mortgage payments. In addition, Allsup Employment Services (AES), an Allsup subsidiary and Social Security-approved Employment Network, helps people return to work through Social Security’s Ticket to Work Program if and when they become medically able.
