I've tried searching for active threads with no luck. Im currently in my first semester of my PsyD clinical program. Unfortunately I have been hit with what appears to be depression. I am not suicidal in any way but have have some classic symptoms such as low interest, low energy, and concentration issues. Im thinking of reaching out to speak to some one and rule out other causes. But im afraid a diagnosis and especially treatment such as antidepressants will damage future licensing and employment opportunities. I don't know wether the California licensing board will even care or ask. According to online info they do monitor the pharmacy prescriptions. As far as employment I would like to work for the California Correctional Health Care Services as pyshcologist and I don't know if government and state agencies like them would disqualify me I know military would be out the window.
