The Truth Provider
Newly diagnosed I would say no. If a at least one year controlled and you have proven compliant with meds and therapy yes.
There are multiple professions and vocations where pre-determined mental illness is excluded from the workforce, including law enforcement. Many fire departments even test for it prior to hiring. Not sure why you think that this would be impossible in EMS, or what evidence you have that mental illness is so endemic among EMS personnel.Just to put my humble opinion in on this one....... If we were to exclude all mental illnesses from the EMS profession who would be left to actually work here?
