I just worry that due to the stressful nature of the job, I might fail due to having a history of not great mental health.
I’m fine and been fine for years, not on any medication, just worry it’ll hold me back
I have just done my occupational health and I have a history of some mental health struggles, as long as you’re honest with them they go off individual circumstances!
If you genuinely feel fit and well enough to handle the stresses of the job I’m sure you’ll be absolutely fine 🙂

Good morning
Finally after eight and a half weeks vetting, I got the call last night.
I start in a South East prison on the 28th December and will be going to Lilleshall in Newport on the 11th January.
It has been a long process with references not being received etc!!!!
I was expecting Newbold so does anyone have any experience of Lilleshall? Is anyone else going in January?
It is quite a distance for me but quicker than expected so accepted immediately.
