    Had to decide if I wanted the uni to tell my lecturers and tutors about my mental health diagnosis (schizophrenia) and being a small course they will know who I am. I was brave and ticked yes to letting them know! Being a clinical psychology course I'm hoping they won't be prejudice or treat me differently (in a bad way)

    If they did it would be breaking the law. When you tick that box, you become protected by the equal opportunities act.

    Understand your worries though. Last week sat with student services whilst they read through my trauma history with all my diagnoses and first response was "we'll put you down as having anxiety and depression" 🙄 Erm no you won't because that doesn't describe my mental illness at all. Ive also found that people tend to be more accommodating when they know the proper dx and not the sugar coated let's not label you version. Anxiety and depression hardly explains how one minute I can appear fine and the next I'm in child part or completely zoned out because I'm triggered 😡

    Also wanted to say that I trained as a therapist with my dx and I'm on psychology degree. You should be fine. I've also been speaking to practising clin psychologist about my dclinpsy aspirations and they see no issue with dx as long as safe to practice at the time.

    I went to the reception for student wellbeing at uni, and got sent elsewhere... and the other desk was closed. I then called their number, and got told the number had changed. I called the new number and got referred to the old one ._.

    This is absolutely ridiculous; it shouldn't be so difficult to find the contact point for mental health.

    Hei, just wanted to say "Hello"! I am fine, loads of nice people around me, but also loads to do and thus often too tired to stop by. Hope all of you are fine and/or getting better! Big hugs!

    Sadly, no - just a matter of sitting it out

    Well I may have given you the flu yet, don't thank me too soon 😉

    There's no shame in needing the hospital. Always better to seek help when we are best able to utilise it. Faster recovery too. I have to remind myself of this premise fairly often but one that's worth reminding
