With a doctorate in education, while a practicing psychologist, Dr. Napoleon N. Vaughn’s
epic book encompasses over a decade of his work as a psychological consultant for
one of the nation’s 54 Disability Determination Services (DDS) under the Social Security
Administration (SSA). Hundreds of claimants came to Dr. Vaughn for evaluation and,
in addition to them, he has led countless self-
Crisply and comprehensibly written, Unmasking The Mystery Of Mental Illness For Social Security bridges attorneys’ legalese and psychologists’ jargon, painstakingly decoding both, as a compatible marriage for potential beneficiaries, their advocates, and others. Dr. Vaughn tells how to drive a stake in bad applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Although routinely qualified, up to 69% of disabled people are rejected because of poor packaging. One of the book’s big public service advantages is helping them learn to succeed the first time. Thus, help is on the way.
Between these pages, 13 fat chapters in five parts generously excerpt Social Security
rules. They are demystified, together with work of consultative psychologists, in

Sadly, many have no idea how or if they qualify under provisions of a mental condition and, consequently, botch their application for Social Security benefits. Mental illness remains the second most frequent disability in America. And among millions with severe mental impairments, depression looms as the “common cold” for those whose personal demons daily haunt them.

Rather than automatic, this cardinal rule dictates what many people call incredibly tough. But the agency cannot give away the store.
Not to be ignored is Unmasking The Mystery Of Mental Illness For Social Security use by nearly all in speaking to everybody: workers, applicants, dependents, doctors, attorneys, social workers, advocates, and, among others, psychologists. As for the latter, it’s an instruction manual for becoming psychological consultants. Further, a need exists for society to improve its negative attitude toward mentally ill people.
In conclusion, Dr. Vaughn helps those who life takes to places they had not wanted to go, but must deal with the hand dealt them, and their true journey lingers deeply within. Grab a bunch of psychic rewards. Enjoy!
