I have had depression. I responded well to treatment and know how to keep myself well. I am still on a low dose of medication, but I am fine, and get a lot of support from my husband and other family and friends. Will this mean I can’t adopt? Being on medication does not prevent you from adopting. However, children need parents who are physically and mentally well and we will seek advice from your GP about how you are managing. Becoming a parent can be stressful and demanding, and we need adopters to feel well supported, and mentally robust. If in doubt about this (or any other medical condition) talk to your GP about your adoption plans, and ask their opinion about your health.
