I am a head of department and I have been on anti-depressants for the past year and have made two suicide attempts in the last 6 months. I don't want to go into too much detail here but I've been off work for 2 months with severe depression. During an appointment with my psychiatrist today it was suggested that I may have bipolar disorder. I am due to go for further test but am worried about how this will affect my career. Can anyone advise?
