  1. A mental health diagnosis, or their physical health condition is impacting on their mental health
  2. A long term physical condition, which is something that cannot be cured but can be managed (e.g. diabetes or chronc obstructive pulmanary disorder) 
  3. A social challenge that means they are struggling to manage one or more aspects of their day to day living*
