I am a teacher of adults with dyslexia, within Skills for Life programmes and have worked with people with dyslexia for over 30 years, from primary to HE. I also have relatives with dyslexia. I do not have dyslexia, but have had depression. Many learners I have worked with, at various levels of ability and achievement, have had depression and other mental health issues. I do think that undiagnosed and un recognised/understood dyslexia can lead to a depreciation in mental health. The noticeable improvements that people with dyslexia make in well being when recognised, supported and listened to are worth measuring. I also feel that when I had depression, I shared some of the feelings that affect people with dyslexia - the shame and feeling of being misunderstood which many of my learners report, for example.
