There used to be a fantastic walk through guide to claiming DLA on mental health grounds. It was from the Barton Hill site, but they no longer do it.
Does anyone else know of a free guide such as this? The only one i can find costs 17 membership to the site. Don't suppose anyone happened to save their old free one and could send me it?
I receive DLA. It's for a couple of friends who are struggling with the forms.

'Mental Health grounds' is very very broad..

What exactly is wrong with them and you if you don't mind me asking?

Bipolar, Histrionic Personality, Schitzophrenia, OCD, Anorexia, Anxiety, Depression etc..?

Bloody hell, I know there's genuine people that need help but talk about a guide to cheat the system.

humphrey they still contact your doc and psychiatrist so it's not a way to fake anything.

Nope it doesn't work like that and most peple are turned down the first time.

My father had a disability allowance and was turned down the first time even though due to his heart problems he could hardly walk the length of himself. He applied again and was accepted altho nothing had changed . My mother was his sole care and I helped her fill in the forms which stumped me never mind very elderly people.
