Hi, I'm thinking of signing up as a musician after I finish my degree which will be around Sept 2007. Just for information I am a 19 year old female music student. I have read some posts with people asking about whether they will be accepted as they have suffered from depression in the past. I myself suffered briefly from depression last year. I was on the lowest dose of medication for about two months, and then decided I did not need it. I was referred to the local mental health team, but on assessment they decided that I did not have a mental illness. I have superficially self-harmed for a brief period, and was in hospital once from a non-lethal over dose. I must stress that this was self-harm and not a suicide attempt. This all went on for only a period of about 3-4 months and I have been off meds and received no treatment since the beginning of November. Basically I was wondering if this will totally blow my chances of getting in. As a musician I would be less likely to be in a combat situation than some soldiers. Will this help? I have no other physical or mental health conditions. Any tips on fitness would also be great. Oh, and if this isn't in the right place please feel free to move it. Thanks.
