    I have recently undergone yet another mental health assessment to deal with seeing things and hearing things. Without going into it too much they have just said it was basically down to in times of stress I have started to see this and it will go away. If anything it's getting worse but at the same time it's very stable. I don't want to come right out and say "you've diagnosed me incorrect" but I do believe there is more there than what they believe. This isn't just me this is my friends saying it to me as well, and I have looked more up online about my symptoms. I have had depression for 3 years now and anxiety for around 2. This is all very recent and I'm still confused about it.

    should I just openly say to them that I believe there is more wrong than they think? I don't want to look like a idiot for labelling another disorder on myself when it's the opposite? if that makes sense.

    Tell them you are uncontent and why, however be very very wary of confirmation biases - symptom descriptions online are often extremely broad and so it's easy to say "I have x" from seeing some very broad phenomena in yourself so long as you had a particular thought about what sort of illness you had.
