I foster for Coventry and have found them very supportive so far. With regards to anti-depressants, I have used them in the past but during my assessment had to demonstrate that it was not a recurring long term issue, ie I only needed them when my dad died as a one off. they like you to have stopped using them for a while and to be able to prove you are stable etc. You have a medical also and my doctor had to write what their opinion on the matter was and if they deemed me suitable. Luckily they did but it was something I worried about for the whole 6 months of my assessment. X
