    Hello @stevebarrett   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing. I am one of the team of community champions on the forum. We guide, advise and help new members.

    Sorry what you are going through . I know there will be many members who can identify what you are experiencing.

    You done the right thing contacting your MP. Many members have done this .

    Please can I ask are you receiving any support with your depression.? Have you spoken to your Doctors or looked on line for support.

    Something to consider mental health charities.

    Please can I ask have you phoned DWP to find out the state of your tribunal.  The outcome.

    Give them a ring they should be able to tell you.

    Please ask if we can help with anything. Some one will know.

    We are here as a community to support you.

    Please take care.

    Hi @stevebarrett welcome to the community. :)

    I am sorry to hear about what you are going through. Well done for getting in touch with your MP. I hope you hear from your MP and DWP very soon, like @thespiceman mentioned maybe you can give them a call for them to update you.

    If you are having thoughts of suicide, it is important that you discuss them with someone who is qualified to help. Please call the Samaritans on 116 123 (free) or email them at [email protected]
