    Hello @rogerdodger   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    I am sorry to hear that you having problems.

    I am one of the team of community champions who help and advise new members who join.

    I have mental health issues myself. No how hard this is. 

    I use mental health charities.  I used this one last time if that helps you.


    Have a look at our mental health support and advice may be useful to look at.  On our website and please take some time to look around. We are friendly.

    As for problems with forms and benefits I use CAB for form filling in. Very informative, helpful.

    Please ask if we can help and advise some one will know.  From our team or a member of our community.

    Please take care.
