I'm looking into getting my CT pistol permit and I have to fill out paperwork for my local police department on top of the state paperwork. To say the least, the paperwork for my local police department is quite intrusive. One of the questions is "have you ever consulted or been treated by a professional psychiatrist or psychologist for mental or emotional problems"? This poses a problem because I saw a psychologist for a period of about a year which ended six months ago. It was voluntary, was never diagnosed with anything and I was never placed on medication. I was also never committed to an institution. I am wondering if answering yes to this question would cause my application to be denied, and if so what the next step would be from there? Also, I am aware that contacting an attorney would be the best course of action, but unfortunately that costs money that I do not have at the moment, so it's just not an option for me (sorry to those who already said I should consult an attorney).
