Previous mental health records.


Hi all. Planning to send my application to the RN at some point this year. I’m confident with all the eligibility aspects however I am somewhat concerned at a previous mental health issue I had. I was off sick from work (was working in NHS at the time and was off for about 6-7weeks) for a short period of time with what the GP referred to as a “Mood issue”. I was never diagnosed for anything but was provided medication for a short period, about 4 months i think.
I have since stopped taking the medication and had returned to work but I am worried this might appear as a big black mark on my application. Anyone able to give any advice on this issue? Thanks
