  • NYPD DQ over Depression??

    Hi, quick question

    About two years ago, i went to my doc and was diagnosed with Major Depression, (Due to Failing Grades etc). Anyway i over came that without ever visiting a psychiatrist, or every taking any medicine. Followed up with my normal follow up with doctor (regular Doc) and told him that i am very well now, dont have any depression and quite happy now, and have no worries. Can the Psych DQ me for having depression?

    Answered in the NYPD thread. No need to start a new one.

        The main difference in diagnoses of depression is between chronic and acute forms. That's often correlated to a difference between internal condition and response to external stimuli. Why are you bummed out? Oh 'cause life always sucks even though you won the lottery this week? Sorry here's some nortryptyline. Oh 'cause your friend is having some serious problems? Sorry and that's normal.

          Chronic depression is often characterized as a phasic part of a bipolar disorder.

          Sometimes it can be addressed by willful suppression of excessive elation.

          In some instances that suppression is spontaneously compensated for in a manner resulting in non-subjection to excessive depression.

            In my opinion, as long as you have unresolved issues regarding depression, you would do better to not aspire to be the Police.

              Unless you put it down, i dont think they will ever know about ( not saying you should hide anything) they will not request you're medical records unless there is an issue ( failing blood pressure, diabetes, surgeries, or if you put down depression)

                I hope you're kidding.

                Anything that could influence your performance as a Police Officer should be disclosed.

                Lives are on the line.

                  Can it? Yes definitely.

                  Will it? Dunno.

                    Depression over grades?

                    Seek employment elsewhere.

                    Sorry, I'm to the point.

                        Hide it or not. They will know who you are after the first couple of answers. Im sure if you deem fit, you have nothing to worry about.

                          With all the cops that have committed suicides if you were depressed about grades then this job's is a whole new ball game. Truthfully hope you reconsider you're career options.

                            You didn't say that; you said this:

                            Saying "(not saying you should hide anything)" is NOT the same as saying "you shouldn't hide anything".

                            Your message strongly suggests that the applicant attempt nondisclosure.

                            That's not good advice.

                              Sounds like you had an issue you never sought the proper treatment for. Just because your are not having an issue now doesn't mean you don't still have a problem. Police work is a very mentally challenging career. Most cops know more cops that killed themselves than have been killed in the line of duty. Do everyone a favor get a professional psychological diagnosis before you continue your pursuit of this career. The life you save may be your own.
