So on Wednesday I had my first day of my new college.
I found at my last college that disclosing my mental health problems helped me more then it hurt. I was able to talk to my teachers at will and got the help needed when I needed it.
It gave me the reassurance that my teachers wouldn’t judge my bad days.
Of course, you are under no objection to disclosing any illness mental or otherwise. I felt telling my experience of telling my teachers would help anyone who is deciding whether to tell their teachers about their illness.
I suppose it depends if your illness can affect your education.
Personally, my mental illnesses don’t affect my ability to learn all the time but a bad depressive episode can be a disaster.
I also feel that having your teachers/school know about your illness it means you have a better chance of being able to access any services they offer like counselling or help with other aspects of your life.
