Do you qualify for an Emotional Support Animal?

Do you qualify for an Emotional Support Animal?

Are you struggling with significant anxiety, depression or another mental health disorder which makes it difficult to get through the day alone? Does your pet provide you relief from the symptoms of your mental health diagnosis?  If so, you may qualify for a Emotional Support Letter.

Emotional Support Animals are necessary for some people with mental health concerns, and supported by the Americans with Disabilities Act, The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and The Fair Housing Act.  And, landlords are legally not allowed to charge those who require an emotional support animal for an additional housing fee.

There are numerous benefits that research reveals for people who have an emotional support animal.  Some of these benefits include: increased sense of meaning, improved self-esteem, reduced anxiety, decreased isolation and improved physical health.

Emotional support animal letters are required to be issued by a licensed mental health clinician who can evaluate whether the mental health diagnosis justifies the need for a support animal.  Got questions about the process?
