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. Last year i went through a messy marriage break up and i won't bore everyone with the details but i hit rock bottom and tried to overdose
    I'm well past this now and want to join the TA.
    Will this stop me from being able to join up
  2. Considering it was only last year I would expect you to be failed on medical grounds however that's just my opinion based on dealing with applications from other recruits and each case will be considered on it's indivdual facts. You can still apply and would need to make sure you declare all the details on your medical forms and have it corroborated by your GP who will detail any medication you were given and whether he still considers you a suicide risk. The medical officer will then make a decision on your suitability when you have your army medical.
