    Hello @birdistheword warm welcome and we are sure we have information  that covers this disability. The following is taken from the community's mental health discussion group:

    "Whether you have an ongoing mental health condition or you're experiencing difficulties due to your current situation, declining mental health can make you feel desperate, confused and alone. But you're not alone, and it's estimated that a quarter of all people in the UK will experience a mental health problem this year.

    This discussion group is a place to share your experiences of mental health issues, to get and to give support to others in a similar situation. Whether suffering from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or another mental health condition, you are welcome here. Please be aware though that nothing written in this community should be seen as professional advice.

    For a wide range of mental health resources including avenues for seeking professional help, take a look at Mind's website, or give them a call on  0300 123 3393."
