    Hello all I'm hoping you're able to help me with this.

    I think I could really benefit from an assistance dog, but I have no idea how to get one.

    I think it would help me with my severe anxiety, as well as personality disorder and PTSD triggers. I've heard they are also helpful with absence seizures which I suffer from, that would be particularly helpful on public transport.

    What do i do to try and see if I qualify? How do I do it? Where do I look? Who do I ask? Is it even possible?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Sophie.

    Try http://www.assistancedogs.org.uk/ for a seizure alert dog.
    I looked for an assistance dog for my mental health and sadly the UK does not have mental health assistance dogs, you'd have to go to USA for that and I know nothing about getting a dog from USA or even if places in UK would accept an assistance dog from a different country as, I believe, mental health dogs aren't recognised here.

    I wish you luck.
