Recruiting of potential personal with ADHD

Morgan Towns made this Official Information request to New Zealand Defence Force

The request was successful.

From: Morgan Towns

Dear New Zealand Defence Force,

I would like to know what the policy is regarding the recruitment of new personal with ADHD, mainly regarding potential issues that it may bring up during training.

Secondly is it possible to circumvent the requirement of a report from employer/Community leader if one is not available and those who do not go to Psychiatrist's over it and if that would impact employment into the Defense Forces.

Yours faithfully,

Morgan Towns
