The military has had physical and mental health requirements for eligible recruits for many years. This has resulted in mandated psychiatric evaluations for anyone who is trying to enlist that has not done well on specific screenings given by recruiters, any history of psychiatric treatment, unusual scars or history of behavioral issues.
   
Owl CU Behavioral Health, in Tucson, provides psychiatric evaluations within a reasonable time frame to help individuals meet this requirement. “While the evaluation does not guarantee enlistment eligibility, it will provide clients with a thorough psychiatric assessment,” says Clarese Basile, a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and counselor.
   
The Department of Defense made adjustments to mental health fitness of duty for new applicants in 2005. The changes have made it clearer to identify what is acceptable for applicants by providing guidelines of conditions and time since treatment. These rules help to
identify individuals who are less likely to succeed in the
military environment.
