    If you were discharged by the mental health team in the future then this should not affect any future PIP reviews. Just because a person doesn't receive any treatment or support it doesn't mean their condition has changed or improved. 2023 is a long way off, try not to worry too much about that right now, easier said than done i know.

    You only need to tell the PIP if you have a change of circumstances in this case if your mental health improves, as this doesn't seem to be the case and you can self refer if needed and you are still having counselling then there is no reason that I can see that would mean your PIP ending.
    Be extra nice to new members.
