    It is good that they are saying something. But I would think that could have been worded way more strongly with better examples. It is such a problem for people with mental health problems to deal with ordinary life and really not enough is done to help with that in so many places.. I would have liked them to say it with a lot more umph!

    I suspect they will. This statement is the first step after initial research, and their research will be continuing in the autumn. Citizens Advice are not known for holding back .

    Of course you would! All we do is wave pompoms and try to remind you that you are awesome and you CAN do it!

    No, I work full time though in Architecture balancing the job, spine pain, depression etc. I'll be honest to say that the job keeps me saneish i.e. gives some form of routine that helps reduce my anxiety
