   The important thing to find out is whether his doctor doesnt have the time to help in this capacity or if he believes he is not SSI eligible as a person has to have a qualifying disability. The criteria for SSI for any disability including depression are listed under the "questions and answers" section at ssa.gov which is the official social security website.
   If his psychiatrist believes he is not eligible it would be important for him to discuss the reasons why and what else his psychiatrist feels he could do as there are agencies that assist people with disabilities find work. If he has overall concerns about his psychiatrist agencies such as NAMI can provide some information as regards referrals and also try calling local psychiatric hospitals as many psychiatrists that work there have an outpatient practice as well.
