I’ve seen enough disclosures to know it happens a fair amount, but probably nowhere near enough compared to the reality.Does anyone have any experience with disclosing a previous mental illness diagnosis in an application form? I am completing Macfarlanes' Resilience/Growth and spoke about my history with acute depression and self-harm. I'm not sure if I should tick the 'yes I have a mental disability' box (I've been ticking no in my previous application) as I have not suffered a depressive episode in the last 2 years.
@Jessica Booker or any other future trainees, do you have any insight on this?
It’s such a personal thing though as it is a self disclosure. It’s very difficult to explain what should be done as it is ultimately down to how you would declare/disclose yourself
