Can you actually access the SSD at all, as in: is it still alive?

Check output of `lsblk` and look for failures in `dmesg` and
`journalctl -p 4`. If the disk is present, check its SMART data with
`smartctl -a /dev/sdX`, and if it's "alive" and you can acces it,
mounting it should be possible as usualâ„¢.  (Depending on the actual
setup you of course might have to also do LVM, mdadm, cryptsetup,...
magic, but then we'd need more details about your setup.)
