Mental Health

I was just reading the .pdf on mental health and i am a little confused.
Because i have Autism, ASD to be exact. Now on page 6 it mentions this but im a little confused. When it says this does it mean i can or cant join the army?

3.14.29. The crucial group in this category are candidates with autism (F84) who
should normally be graded S8. Occasionally candidates present with a diagnosis of

Autism makes you ineligible to join

any grading in PULHHEEMS of '8' is 'unfit for military service'
