Also, was it an acute illness, or one which you were on repeat medication for? Basically, did you just mention it to the GP in discussion or was it something you needed proper help with?
It's a tough one. Most people will tell you be 100% honest, and I agree, but at the same time I can sort of see the temptation that there's no point incriminating yourself if it's not written down anywhere. If it's not on there, and you're just handing them that bit of paper then there doesn't seem to be much point in declaring it, but think very carefully about the risks around this because lying will probably get you the boot (no pun intended).
It really depends how severe your mental health issues were, as to whether it will be a medical fail, I believe.
I have my clinical triage call soon, but I’m not sure what info to disclose? I know you have to say everything, but I requested my full GP record and nothing about a previous mental health issue is on there. The only person I spoke to about it is my school nurse, so does that mean it isn’t on any record? Or will they somehow find it? I don’t want to tell them about it unnecessarily as I know I’ll have to appeal it and don’t want to.
