Hello, i plan on applying within the next 2 years. (Due to my braces i would like to be taken off first) but i have self harm scars and i hear they won't take you? I was wondering if theres anyone who's been accepted with self harm scars and if anyone could tell me more about it. The self harm that was done (a year ago) was only through the period of 3 weeks and i have many scars but most are faint enough to not be seen. I don't know if my gp is aware of the time period that the self harming was done and has put that i'm still doing it. I believe also they still have my record as still suffering from mental illness.
