How can I account for a long break in my work history? Plus, I'm disabled.

Because of a disability, I have not been in the workforce for nine years. I am now looking for employment and would like some advice on how to account for the absence.

I have been in college for the last three years, and I know this to be a great thing, as I will graduate soon. I am mentally disabled, but that does not preclude me from doing many work-related activities. I would be grateful for tips for my resumes, as I am trying to dress them up to my current circumstances. I also understand that the truth is sufficient for certain opportunities, but I may start out with a job that need not bear unveiling the truth. If this helps, my employment experience includes high-end retail, customer service, shipping and receiving, kitchen work, and technical photography skills.
