    Hello @bolly and welcome to the online community, it's lovely to see you join us and thank you for telling us about the situation you are in.

    Wow, you've had to wait a very long time, and I'm sorry about that. It's clearly having an impact on your mental health which is absolutely understandable.

    Do you currently have any support in place to help you manage your mental health? If you don't, I would suggest getting in touch with your GP if you feel as though things are getting quite hard to cope with at this moment in time.

    This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m hopeful that you’ll find it to be a positive outlet. Feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 I have included below a few of the pages I’d recommend having a look through to get used to things:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.

    Hello and welcome from me too @bolly and I'm sorry to read about the wait you've been having for a tribunal date too. I can understand why it's stressful. 

    I hope your GP or another mental health specialist is able to support you with your depression and anxiety, but do contact them if you feel you aren't getting enough support at the moment. 

    Let us know if there's anything you need, and enjoy your time on the community :)
