Self harm and Army?

Hi, I used to self harm in high school for basically a year (8 years ago) will that stop me from being able to get into the Australian army? I can't hide the scars or anything so it will be obvious.

    No, it shouldn't prevent you from joining as long as you don't have any documented mental illnesses.

    Make up some bullshit excuse for the scars. Say your dad abused you and did it idk. Not like they can prove it was you.

    It should stop you. Seek another job. I wouldn’t be comfortable giving you a loaded gun.

      Erh I'd be comfortable giving him a loaded gun. He's not a ***** that's what you military needs

    Nope. I DO wonder, though, why it is usually a girl who "self-harms".

      My self harm was not related to mental health issues per say, it was related to the peer pressure in the environment I was in at the time. I'm not sure if that's a common reason for females?
