Hi all. Some time ago, I endured a stress related psychotic break. The whole event lasted roughly two weeks, the last ten days of which I was hospitalized. All treatment was voluntary, and the psychiatrist I’ve been seeing does not seem to think I have a condition which can be diagnosed.
The stressors that led to the break were from a myriad, so I don’t think I can simply claim it was familial. How much time do I need to distance myself from this event to mitigate concerns with regards to obtaining a secret clearance? Currently job hunting, and most strongly prefer a job which requires a clearance. If I need to wait a year, though, I will unfortunately have to rule those positions out.
