Hi. My 19 year old son is very keen to join the RAF. He applied, aced the cbt tests but has been rejected because he went through a dark period during a levels when he self harmed twice. He saw a dc after both episodes who wrote them up as superficial. He had counselling and is now very well. His raf application was rejected due to the self harm, he appealed with a letter from his gp and two other character witnesses - this has also been rejected.
He really wants the raf, how can I best guide and support him?
The self harm was only superficiall, it happened in 2016, and has left no scar.
Thank you in anticipation of some advice.
