You are preparing for a field course in Scotland, 300 miles away from your campus. Shortly before the course, Thomas comes to see you to tell you that he has a diagnosed mental illness. He is on medication, and is seeing a psychiatrist once a week. He is very keen to take part in the field course, but he is very anxious that he may not be able to cope in the unfamiliar situation.
