My question has to do with the VA CHP and mental health disqualifications. I'm currently learning about adult ADD/ADHD, and I'm curious if someone who was officially diagnosed with the disorder would be ineligible for the CHP, or if they already held one, would it be revoked.
I remember seeing a paragraph about being ineligible for a permit if someone had been diagnosed or treated for certain mental conditions within the last five years. (If I remember correctly..) But I don't remember what conditions were defined in that paragraph.
My Google-fu is weak, so if anyone could chime in with the answers, that would be great.
After those hurtles go to THIS LINK
- Have you ever been acquitted by reason of insanity?
- Have you ever been adjudicated legally incompetent or mentally incapacitated, or adjudicated an incapacitated person?
- Have you ever been involuntarily admitted to a facility or involuntarily ordered to outpatient mental health treatment?
- Have you ever been the subject of a temporary detention order and subsequently agreed to voluntarily admission for mental health treatment?
Read all the code sections from 18.2-308 up through 18.2-308.2.1
I do not believe ADHDand ADD are mentioned specifically, but some of the drugs and admission to some of the treatment centers might be a problem.
