How to Recover Data on Corrupted MBP's SSD?

It seems like I’ve used up all space on my MBP, and when I rebooted it it became corrupted/inoperable (when I go into disk utilities, Macintosh HD is “unmounted”, and when I press “mount”, nothing happens. On internet recovery, the same thing gives me “Alert: couldn’t mount disk”. Clicking “Repair” gives me “Alert: Partition map repair failed while adjusting structures to fit current whole disk size.”) I was wondering if it’s possible to recover any data from it? I have some sensitive documents that haven’t been backed up due to a poor internet connection. On Disk Utility it says the drive could not be mounted and I can’t find the drive via the terminal.Thank you!

To recover data from MBP's SSD, what you need to do first is to try to mount your SSD. If you can't mount your SSD, you can use Disk Utility, power cycle, or repair the SSD from Disk Utility. If these ways cannot help you to mount your SSD, it might be physically damaged, and you can send it to local technicians for reparation or replace it with a new one.
