Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I recently made a post but got no replies so im making it short in hope that someone will reply.

    Im wanting to join the TA as a driver but was told after talking to one of the guys at the TA after filling out my medical form that there was no way i would get into the army or TA because i suffered depression in the past i also self harmed during this time which was around 7 or 8 years ago

    So my question is according to the JSP 346 requirements if you have'nt self harmed within a certian period of years and was a one off due to some stressfull event or suffered from depression within a certian amount of years also due to stressors if i fall under these catagories/requirements should there be any reason for a MO to reject me also will i have to attend a medical before they give this desision unless they thought i was under S8
     
  2. More than one episode of self harm makes you ineligible forthe Army regardless of how long ago it was.
    You have one episode so it should be ok.
    Were you medicated for Depression?
    Get a letter from your Doc explaining everything.
