Pip questionnaire concerning law change

After a recent Supreme Court ruling against pip concerning social support I have been told by pip that they have sent a questionnaire out to me about my illnesses. I have depression and delusional disorder. My anxiety has gone through the roof as I hate it when I have to deal with them as I don’t feel like they understand mental illness very well. I was just wondering whether anyone else had received this questionnaire and what it asks for? Thanks

    Hi @Cjb80

    Thanks for posting your question, and sorry to hear that this has caused you so much anxiety, do you have any coping techniques that you can utilise at this moment in time to help ease those feelings? 

    I imagine that the forms you'll receive will aim to find out about how your condition impacts you on a daily basis, so it might be worth giving that some consideration and thinking about the sorts of things you want to put in the form. 

    It can seem daunting when you receive a form to fill out, so much so that it can be worthwhile having a friend or family member with you while filling it out, just so that they can provide support throughout.
