Can PIP get backdated to when I was prescribed medication?

Joeed48 Member Posts: 3 Listener
I have just recently filled in a form for PIP as I've been told I can perhaps get on it as I'm mentally disabled.

Would PIP backdate to when I first got my medication/had my first psychiatrist appointment which was back in 2018?

I have made 1 claim before to PIP but didn't submit the forms due to thinking it wasn't for mental disability, but now I'm curious if I can get it backdated to either when I first got medication or backdated to when I first tried to fill out a claim for PIP.
