There are no specific mental health issues in a Candidate’s past that the NYPD would automatically disqualify them for. Each Candidate’s mental health history is considered on a case by case basis. However, all Candidate’s with a history of mental health issues, should be prepared to answer any and all questions about their mental health diagnoses, including past and/or present treatment(s), as well as any therapy and/or medications they may have received, the circumstances and symptoms surrounding their mental health history, and how each of these items have affected both their past and present situation.

If you failed your NYPD Psychological Evaluation or have been disqualified for any reason and would like to schedule a free consultation, please contact Kevin Sheerin at 516 248 0040.
