No you will not. Go get the help you need. Just disclose honestly if asked on future forms.

Security clearances are like levels of trust. Does what you’re going through make you untrustworthy? Regardless, your health is more important than a clearance.

Nope. I take all kinds of shit and still have mine.

No. This isn’t the 1950s. A major population of those of us who were active duty with that clearance now have PTSD/anxiety in our VA rating. I know previous coke heads and meth users who had TS clearances. Everyone I know has a therapist (vets or otherwise); some psychiatrist. You’re mental health is paramount. See someone.

This takes courage. Go get help

Nope- Even if it did, your mental health is way more important.

Going to a therapist will not affect your clearance. Keeping everything bottled up and doing something dangerous could. Go get the help you need.

The military is working really hard to dispel this myth since it’s causing people to not seek help when they should. Really, unless you’re condition is so serious that it would cause them to separate you, there’s almost no chance them to revoke your clearance on just that basis alone.

You do not have to disclose any mental health visits if it it strictly ‘family/marriage’ related. If you are extremely concerned, then go for that reason first to see if it helps

I am not aware of any cases where someone has lost a security clearance due to taking active steps to preserve their mental health via a mental health provider. I've known several individuals who were/are cleared TS//SCI and then some, who have manageable mental health issues and are still able to function in their jobs.

When I pointed out that she compared my sister only to my brothers, I earn more than them, and both my sister and I are at top firms in our fields, she said, "...mm". Later she said how happy I am when I'm not working and I should quit to raise kids (no kids yet)
