Re: contesting a failed assessment

Hi there, So... The LA have not recommended me. This is on the basis that I have had 3 episodes of depression where I have not taken up the counseling or therapy offered (this in my opinion was never needed and a waste of resource), and that I have not fully agreed that my sister poses a risk to her...
