I have recently been accepted to an MD program and wish to join the national guard, but would like to know my chances of getting clearance before I get my hopes up. 7 years ago, when I was 18, I was involuntarily committed to a mental health facility because I took a hallucinogen and had an adverse reaction to it. Psychiatrists thought I had bipolar disorder, and I was treated with medication for about 2 years until I switched psychiatrists. The new psychiatrist says I did not have bipolar disorder and that it was an adverse reaction to the hallucinogen. I got off of the medication, got my life together, and have gotten myself into my states top medical school. I have not drank alcohol or done a drug in about 7 years and have not taken psychiatric medication in 5 years and have also not been in treatment.
Have never been arrested or anything.
Do you think there is a shot I get a SECRET level clearance? Is there anything I can do to improve my chances such as meeting with a government psychiatrist prior to submitting my sf86
