Hi,

I have suffered from low mood i.e. mild depression for no particular reason (chemical imbalance?) since my teens and have been on citalopram. No history of self-harm or anything untoward, just lethargy and general pessimism. I am 29 now. Is this a bar to service, as my symptoms are under control and I now lead a very active and productive life, hence my interest in RMR.

Again, a definitive decision can only be given by a qualified service medical practitioner but to give a rough idea, any period of mental illness treated for more than 12 weeks is likely to be a significant issue. In all cases, the individual must be at least 3 years clear of medication (4 years for asthma inhalers).
