Have recently left a mental hospital. I am still under supervision of the mental health crisis team. Should I apply for PIP. Thank you in advance for any advice. And I would like to say hello to all on here

    Hi @ojay123 and welcome to the community. Hello to you too :) It is good to have you with us.
    I can't, myself, directly answer your question, but there will be others in the community who can and you will meet them in due course.
    For now you might want to have a look at the link 'Talk about PIP/DLA' here: and see if there is anything in there that relates to your situation. Indeed, have a look through the links lower down the screen, as you may find other things - like the Mental Health Issues forum that might be of use to you.
    You're among friends here, ojay, so try not to be shy of telling us about yourself or asking any questions. The better we get to know each other, the more easily we may be able to help.
    Warmest best wishes to you,

    Hi @ojay123
    Welcome to the community, PIP is about an impairment affects you in day to day life, there is a PIP self test here you can take to see if you could be entitled to it.
