Its that time of year again, when we are getting ready for Christmas, family and Santa. Sadly not everyone will be looking forward with anticipation, instead simple hoping for food, warmth or a small present. Thankfully there are goups like 'Little Blue Heroes' and 'Barnados' out there. Both help the youngest and most vulnerable in society and this Christmas we ask that you join us in making a donation at https://www.littleblueheroes.org/donate/ or https://www.barnardos.ie/christmas

I dont know, but if you contact occupational health in tullamore they might be able to give you a definitive. I dont see how it would stop you tbh.

I am sure some have.

Is your question directed in relation to a worry about employment due to a past history of same or are you asking in terms of research whether some staff may already have a history of depression/anxiety?

Better able to answer if the context given.

Was directed at a worry. They referred me to an occupational health doc to check me but in the end wasnt a big deal. Few quick questions took 5mins or less.

My cousin is in depression and have also started consuming drugs. He is on the verge to become an addict and I really want to help him to get out of this situation. It will be great if you can recommend a renowned virginia opiate addiction treatment center for him.

This has been locked and reported to the company in question. I'm sure they will be delighted with how their contractors behave

What are you looking to know? I have a history of depression and bipolar II and I work for NAS. It shouldn't be an issue at all. It's nobodies business but occupational health's and they'll generally be there to support you. I personally didn't put it down on my application forum when I applied for the job, it was only when I went for my occ health assessment did I mention it to the nurse. I think even if you did put it on your application forum it wouldn't effect you. 
Didn't effect me in any way. Have taken a grand total of 3 sick days due to it, which you're totally entitled to if having a hard time.
