Psychological Cases

For psychological cases, consult the regulations when possible, and stress the basic question of the patient’s continued ability to serve. Pay special attention to cases with several applicable diagnoses. A diagnosis of personality disorder and neurosis often results in (Honorable) discharge. A diagnosis of adjustment disorder, however, may be considered a disciplinary, nonmedical problem (and will seldom result in treatment or separation from the military), while a diagnosis of psychosis may result in compelled hospitalization or employment problems later.
