James was first admitted to hospital in a crises state in Oct 2009 after he ingested some sodium hypochlorite and iodine solution in a school chemistry lab. It was an impulsive act of deliberate self-harm triggered by thoughts that his teacher was upset with him and ignored him.

Over the past few months,James also had some emotional acting out behaviour in school following conflicts with schoolmates and teachers. James also encountered a sexual exposure and molest episode by an indian male in a public toilet prior to these emotional outbursts.

On evaluation, James was diagnosed to be suffering from a depressive illness. He was treated with medication and supportive psychotherapy. Currently he is on lexapro and hydroxyzine.

As he is now planning to pursue foundation studies in australia, I am refering on for continuing management.

My pshycharist had agreed to add on a statement that I'm stable , emotionally.

Do you think it will affect my application for student permit in australia ??

I should be healthy physically as I went for x-ray and medical examination.

Please advise me .. Thank you !!!
It is not really possible to know what if any action would result from such a health statement for such matters are even decided at arms length from the general Immi officers with recommendations of medical officers followed.

It'll be in your favour to have any supportive medical statement and also that it is a temporary visa that you are applying for but nevertheless I'd not be surprised if medical officers would have your welfare in mind as moving far from home will also have stresses to be dealt with.
