All Mental illnesses to be recognised as disabilities within the benefits sector

This petition had 186 supporters


Mental illnesses arent recognised as disabilities when it comes to the new PIP benefit. As someone who suffers from depression and anxiety I find this discriminating, insulting and diminishing. A member of my close family is going through the process of trying to fight to get PIP as it changes from DLA. This doesn't look very promising after the latest comments from George Freeman. People think that just because they can't see anything different about you and that because you don't look "disabled" theres nothing wrong with you and you don't suffer from dibilitating illness 24/7. This couldnt be any further from the truth!! Please sign this petition and make the government see sense. Make then see that mental illness matters. Make them see that they need to include ALL aspects of mental illness when it comes to benefits and support! Help support ANYONE and EVERYONE that sufferes from any mental illness!!
