Hey, my name is Jon and I have wanted a career in EMS as a paramedic for a long time now. Last night I heard something that concerned me and that's that having a mental illness and being hospitalized for it can disqualify you for any emergency response work. If true, are there any ways to work on this such as a note from my doctor, open communication between my superiors and my doctor, legal representation? I would really hate for this to keep me from doing something I feel I would excel at and really make a difference. Any advice is welcomed. Thanks.
