    Hi @shell - welcome to the community, & thank you for joining & sharing about yourself. Scope has a section on help in getting back to work as mentioned above. Here's the link: https://www.scope.org.uk/employment-services/
    I've heard nothing but good about the 'Support to Work' programme from other members.
    Hope some of this helps. :)

    Hello @shelljenner

    Welcome to the community, good to see you join us but I'm sorry to hear you are struggling at the minute. 

    I hope the above comments have been helpful for you, can I ask are you receiving support from your GP to manage your mental health? Are they aware of how it is impacting you?
