Self harm and depression

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a doctors letter as recommened by other members and my medical records.  I am still on antidepressants but have never received counseling. I was referred a few years ago due to self harm but havent self harmed since.

 

I know I'm almost garunteed to require a phyc exam.  Is there any use in me trying to arrange this before my medical?

Yes.  If you can meet with a psychologist a few times before the medical so you can have a clean bill of health before the medical that would be ideal.

In London they don't require counseling or a psych exam for everybody with a mental illness history. If your doctor letter is thorough, says you are no longer a threat to yourself or others, and you act stable at the exam then that should be sufficient. I know of many in London over the last 10 years who passed with a GP letter. It's up to you.

Thank you.  I'm going to wait.  My doctors letter is very brief, states shes treated me for depression, what medication I'm on, I'm stable and not a threat. If they require it then so be it.  I need to stop being in such a rush. What will be will be.
