How to Get a Psychiatric Service Dog for Depression
You may be aware that emotional support animals help people with depression. But can someone diagnosed with depression also be eligible for a service dog?
The answer is yes. Depression can be considered a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Depression can qualify if it is so chronic and severe that it substantially limits major life activities.
Furthermore, to be eligible, you must also have a need for a dog that has been trained to perform tasks directly relating to your condition. If you only need the dog’s general presence for comfort and emotional support, that is not enough. In that case, an ESA is more suitable for you.
