I’ve recently been in Crisis I think the zero points awarded for my pip app was the final straw.
Ive sent it for MR but don’t know if I can send the evidence of the Crisis of recent days or not. Can anyone help me please

    Hi,
    If it relates to a worsening of condition then it won’t be taken into consideration. They will only take into consideration how your conditions were at the time the assessment took place.

    Hi @TanyaSager

    Welcome to the community, thank you for joining us. I'm sure you'll find this to be a very supportive and welcoming place.

    I'm sorry to hear that you've been in crisis, do you have any friends or family members who can support you at this time? 

    Benefit claims can often feel like a lot to handle, so it might be worth contacting Citizens Advice or going through Advice Local to see if you can find some professional support with it. And of course, you are more than welcome to take part here on the community, peer support can also be a good avenue for helping you feel a bit less alone.

    How is your mental health at the moment? It concerns me that you mention the 0 points as being the thing that pushed you into a crisis, but I hope that you can recover and feel better soon. Are you in contact with your GP about how you feel and are they supporting you to manage your mental health? If you want to access some support and talk to somebody, you can call Samaritans on 116 123 or text "Shout" to 85258, and Mind have plenty of useful resources such as this one.

    Additionally, our email inbox is always open if you want to have a chat, [email protected]
