    I've not heard of this. Only heard of this for ESA.

    Or do you mean when they decided people with mental health difficulties shouldn't get mobility and then changed their mind?

    On   what   grounds   can a person  with  mental  health  issues get  mobility   allowance.?

    It depends how your mental health affects you

    They will in time review all current PIP claims for this but this can take years. They haven't changed the PIP descriptors as yet either. Not everyone with Mental health will qualify for the Enhanced mobility, some will but some won't. There's no need to anything, if you qualify they will contact you. Just don't expect it to be anytime soon.

    If it's a court date, won't that apply to those turned down after that date? 
    Just thinking of the ESA only being back dated to the court date.
    It's not just IB, it's ESA as a whole. Please check your paperwork.
    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    They don’t have to change the descriptors. The court quashed the changes so the law has reverted to the original wording. They have recruited 400 staff to do the reviews but, to be polite, detail on how this will proceed is lacking. Best guess is it will take years.

    The descriptors  for phycological distress are now  getting used like they was doing before the change.

    Before my pip appeal I was not awarded anything for mobility on those grounds-mental health.
    I was fine with that to be honest.
    But at Appeal I was granted 10 points for the journey aspect

    My forms looked to be aimed at just physical issues. Have they reworded some forms?

    The wording of the form remains unchanged. The questions are about whether you can do something reliably, repeatedly, safely or in a reasonable time. Of the reason you can’t is around mental ill health then you say so. The form is not aimed at only one type of impairment.
