    Mild depression would not disqualify you. However, during the testing process assuming that you pass the entrance examination, you do undergo and psychological test. If you dont show any evidence of drug use, severe depression, or other serious problems, you will be fine. But then again, being a journalist you probably do have problems. just kidding. Good luck. If you go to the bookstore, you can find police officer prep guides which explain the psych test thoroughly.

      These are psychologist not psychiatrist (they only render their opinion). One is a PH.D. the other is an M.D. The question you have to ask is, are you still depress? Do you still take medication? Are you a liability as a cop? These are the questions that would concern the honolulu PD. Other than that, you should be ok.

        Doesn't sound like what you described would dq you, unless you are taking meds for depression. That might be a problem--or at least a red flag for an agency, but if you have some underlying psychological problems it will (or should) come out in the psych part of the hiring process.
        Good luck on your PD test!

              Marital counseling should not disqualify you...unless of course you're in counselling because you like to smack your wife around.
