    Mental health is my diagnosis. I find it very hard to talk about and feel a bit embarrassed that I am on meds to stay well. I do worry what peeps without mh issues will feel toward me. I feel like I would like to give employment another try but just don’t know where to start and how it will effect benefit entitlement. If I were to contact dwp employment advisorjust to talk Would it affect my current pip and esa entitlements. Would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

    Hi @ljscope

    I am sorry to hear that you feel this way however it's great that you would like to try working again!

    Have a look at all the information provided in our Work section, which may be of use to you. Regarding your ESA, have they told you about how many hours you are able to work?

    Do let us know if we can be of any further assistance! :)
