Will the Social Security Administration consider mental health problems, like depression, along with physical problems?

The Social Security Administration must consider the combined effect of all impairments, including physical and mental health problems (for example, depression). Thus, if you develop mental health problems due to your physical impairments, it is important to consult your physician so you can obtain proper treatment. This also serves the purpose of documenting your condition so it can be properly considered in evaluating your disability claim.
