Applying to Medicine (2019 Entry) with depression/anxiety watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I want to apply for Medicine for 2019 entry, so will be applying this Autumn.
    I am just wondering whether on the UCAS application (not personal statement) where they ask about health I let them know I have a depression/anxiety disorder.
    I have been diagnosed with it since 2016.
    It used to be really bad, where I wanted to commit suicide, however it is a lot better, but is affecting my work. I am still getting good grades but I'm not sure whether it is worth mentioning as I've read they would pick a mentally stable person over someone who has an illness. But surely they would see that even with it I worked hard to get the grades/ukcat score?
    Thank you to anyone who lets me know what they think
