Okay, I've been reading all of the forums and such but can not find any info like this.

About 7 years ago I did something really stupid and thought that I would take my own life. I was young, stupid and in a bad relationship. Since then I have overcome all of my emotional issues. Will this delay my Visa? What can I do to show the medical physicain it was just a stupid thing ? Thanks for anyones help.

the first thing you can do is to be honest ... the second is to bring along documentation that you were treated and released at the time of your suicide attempt.

Just a thought, but depending on your religious back ground.....I would think that also some type of affidated either from your self or maybe even some sort of clergy saying you have resolved this issue could be helpful....Less things have been dealt with in this order and who can really argue with "GOD" and our sins... wow its really late i think i should get some sleep this K~1 packet has me a tad bit ODD!!! Good Luck with your Journey :)

Um, I don't think the USCIS is concerned about God and sin...I think they would be more interested in knowing the person has been treated for their mental problem at the time (i.e. suicide attempt) than anything else. Just MHO. :)

Yeah my train of thought too. Lots of people can go through a bout of depression (situational), suicide attempt or not, and it not be labled a life term mental condition. It happens, its over, end of story. Perhaps if one has been diagnosed as bipolar, schitzophrenic, or has ongoing depression where one is on meds, etc, that this is the type of mental illness they are referring to.

I had issues with self-harm due to situational depression which ultimately ended up with me in the hospital having OD'd. Since that time I have been medication-free and have not self-harmed again. Because of that, I did not mention it on my immigration paperwork and I was approved fine.

Congrats on getting over it :)

yeah, if you are currently healthy I would think there wouldn't be any issues. Good to hear you've made it through your issues safely though! Good luck! :)

If you say too much you can buy trouble for yourself... as I found out, being compulsively honest. My medical exam turned into an hour of cross-questioning and then I had to get a letter from my psychiatrist to pass the medical... and then when I was doing my AOS I got a letter from USCIS saying I was required to have a followup medical exam in the US before they'd adjust me!

But in the end it all worked out. I got the visa, came to the US, and got my greencard... I could have saved myself a lot of hassle and worry if I'd brought a statement from my head-shrinker to the initial medical but it never occurred to me that I'd need it.

I don't know if it applies to you, but an accidental overdose does NOT COUNT. I didn't have to tell them in the first place...

If your depression issues have been successfully resolved that's all you need to tell them, but you need a letter from your doctor to back yourself up.

Thank you all again so much , and you would think that if depression was a issue I wouldn't be able to handle this daunting Visa Process. I think that is the test of all of our mental sanity. Life throws us curves and sometime you go with them and sometimes you are strong enough to fight them. I've decided I'm a better person and I will fight them All THE WAY !!!!!!!!!

Well, Dave(USC) is bipolar...... he hasn't had the symptoms in a long time but he's on med to prevent mood swings from coming. I hope that doesn't affect us!! I don't think it will. :unsure::star:

01/23/2007- Second Interview. VISA granted!!!

01/29/2007- VISA arrived.... no envelope though. I'm gonna contact them and see what happened this time!

01/31/2007- I'll have to send them one last financial support evidence.

02/02/2007- Evidence received by Consulate

02/06/2007- Consulate sends envelope!
