    Hi  😊
    I have no experience with scope, either. 
    I'm not sure if mental health issues are classed here as a disability. 
    I suppose I'll find out, in time 🙏

    Hi @Allyboo & @Ali_Bee47 - & welcome to the community to you both. A disability is anything that literally dis-ables you, & we have members who have physical problems, some that have mental health problems, & some that have both. I think you'll both find this forum friendly & supportive, so have a look around, & join in with any dicussions that are of interest.

    Hello to you both! Welcome to our community :)

    Mental Health is most certainly included as a disability here, it can be just as debilitating as any physical condition. I manage to bridge both sides, I have Crohn's, ADHD and a comorbid Depression with the 2 of them. Feel free to look around the discussion categories, if you want to just relax a bit I can recommend the Coffee Lounge. Good to relax a bit before you dive into the benefits section for example.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
