Behavioral health disability claims have been reported more frequently over the past several decades (Warren, 2009). This has led professionals to question whether there is an actual increase in actual behavioral health disorders or if there are other issues that are driving this increase (American Medical Association (AMA), 2008; Gatchel & Schultz, 2005; Melhorn & Ackerman, 2008; Reed Group, 2009; Work Loss Data Institute, 2008).
