68X Mental Health Specialist Availability

Curious if anyone has insight on general availablity of 68X.  I'm working with a recuiter and have taken the ASVAB, just waiting in hopes to reserve this MOS and complete MEPS.  Generally speaking, is the Army currently increasing or downsizing 68X?  Thanks!

    This is going to be a tough question to answer unless you encounter someone who works in the 68X MOS or works Human Resources Command. You'll most likely have to wait until you get to MEPS to find out the availability. In my opinion, the availability for this position would be smaller in comparison to other jobs because it is less common, meaning there are fewer slots.

    This may be too little too late, but I thought I'd add my two cents...

     

    I am currently a 68X and we sure are in short supply.  The last I heard, we are one of the few understrength MOS, but I could be mistaken.  I find the MOS to be hit or miss-- you either love the job or hate it.  Just be sure to come on board with an open mind and a willingness to learn and you should get along just fine.
