A Candidate will not be disqualified by the NYPD simply because they have attended therapy/counseling. They will however, want to investigate the facts surrounding the therapy/counseling to better understand the circumstances which led the Candidate to seek therapy/counseling in the first place. They will also want to know how the therapy/counseling went , what the focus of the treatment was and how the Candidate has been doing since seeking the therapy/counseling. Candidates should be prepared and ready to discuss the dates they attended therapy/counseling, who their provider was and what the circumstances were that led them to seek treatment in the first place.
