So if it was a job working with children, other than Camp America, it shouldn't affect it? Like teaching or something?
I think it will just be a crb check not a health check for teaching, but it might be better to ask in the teaching forum about "health forms".
i am also curious to know for sure, what if wanted to go into a job in a high stress environment or something but i have a history of mental illness? (I dont as of yet but its the idea it may be a problem that contributes to me not getting myself sorted)
These are all extremely subjective questions that you are asking. People are put on anti-depressants for a variety of reasons, as well as short term, long term and different dosage courses, and all of this will be taken into account by employers.
Take for example, a 19 year old who was on a 8 month course a year ago. That's in her history, but it's unlikely to affect her job prospects. Equally, an 18 year old who is on a full-time course (ie not looking to come off anytime soon) but coping well and is stable on them is unlikely to have job prospects seriously affected. However, if you're not coping on the drugs you're on, or have come off them and are not coping and that is clear (either in interview or from doctors reports), this could understandably affect your job prospects as employers don't want someone who is going to have a mental breakdown in the middle of their shift.
Do you see what I'm getting at?
Talk to your uni/employers, and your doctor. These are the people who will know best.
this sounds like all the more reason to bottle it all in, if i dont tell anyone i cant be affected anymore, if im feeling like **** beforehand how **** would i feel if i couldnt get the job i wanted because i feel like ****
you dont have to tell them
Yes. You dont have to tell them of any medication you've been on.. They dont need to know. They can discriminate on such grounds
While it's true employers aren't allowed to discriminate against people based on mental illness, 60% of them admitted they would be put off hiring someone with a history of mental illness (annoyingly I can't find the source for this atm, it was in one of the lib dem's speech to the HoC I think). It's up to you whether you wish to disclose it or not.
