Pip assessor’s report mental health ignored
Hi I had my pip review on 14th February and today I got a copy of the assessor’s report. If decision maker agrees I’ll increase to enhanced rates for both elements and will have no further reviews. The report says mental health not causing any problems as I’m not having counselling. I do take antidepressants and changed medications in October due to suicidal thoughts. He’s put that I wasn’t anxious or stressed throughout assessment which isn’t true I was very anxious and that made my arm spasm and twitch badly so much so that my mum who is my carer held my hand to calm me down. I don’t know whether I should go back to them about this and other things missed or just wait until decision letter? Just thinking stress wise it would be worth waiting for decision letter and if that shows I’m on enhanced rates for life to just let it go.
