Im recovering from quite a serious bout of depression (1st time iv had it) and im researching joining up. Does anyone know how depression will affect my application. for example do i need to be clear of medication for a certain amount of time or something like that? thanks
Depends on lots of things, including whether or not you actually have depression. It's a label that many people attach themselves to when their problems are actually more to do with social issues than anything else.
If it is true depression then there are more questions that have to be answered before a yes/no can be given. I would suggest that if you are still "recovering" then you are currently not medically fit for service.
