Hi, i have failed my first year at university twice however i think it is due to mental conditions. I feel as if i have made a mistake by not pulling out earlier and taking time off before recommencing. I would like to do that now and study at a uni closer to home, but firstly taking a year out to get my old habits out of my system, work full-time then commence again from scratch. I am seeking help with produces that I can take regarding student finance and university applications as my portfolio is up to a standard that I know can be recognised as useful and productive. Any helpful advice and actions I can take will be very much appreciated. Thanks

Have you had a problem formally diagnosed or do you just suspect that you might have a mental health issue?
In order to have enough Student Finance to be able to fund a new degree from scratch, you would have to apply for their Compelling Personal Reasons. You will need to provide written proof from doctors, counsellors etc., that you failed your first year twice due to a health problem. If SF accept your evidence, those two years of funding will be reinstated and you can start a new degree. Without that independent proof, you will not have a case.
