So I've been in the support group for the past year. I had some really bad manic episodes which made me eligible. I've had a pretty good year as I've stayed on medication and the episodes seem to have stopped. It's up for renewal but I still think I might be eligible for the work related activity group. In fact I know I won't get the support group this time and it will be the work related activity group or nothing. My dilemma is I've been thinking about my career and I want to do something to improve my prospects so I'm signing up to a Prince's trust programme to get work experience. This is due to start on April 4th and my benefits run out on 31st march. My question is it worth applying for sickness again while doing that or would I have no chance? And would it look bad if Ive been in the support group and now I'm considering doing something like this? It would be very out of my comfort zone but I don't want to be on benefits forever. I could do with the extra money and not with the extra pressure from job centre
