Hi Deirdre

Welcome
Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explains where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work

In case you are not aware, your real name appears to be showing in the forum, if you want to change this then follow the instructions in the following FAQ

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?



It's not so much the conditions that a claimant has, but the impact they have on their daily living and/or mobility.

So for example - There is a question about mixing with other people. So what impact does your severe anxiety and depression have on your ability to do so? Does it stop you going out, does your Trichotillomania further exacerbate your difficulties, and if so in what way in communicating with others.

You would need to look at each question and see how it affects you. There are plenty of people with mental health conditions and disorders who do receive PIP.
