You don't need a form. Just be truthful. JMHO

As was stated, the revised 4473 only regards residency status of legal aliens. It has not changed in regard to the OP's question.

Basically, if they prohibited firearms to anyone that has ever sought help from a mental health professional, many of us wouldn't be able to own firearms. Many of us have been divorced and had to seek counseling, myself included, but this isn't a disqualifying factor for owning firearms. Our servicemen and women that have returned from combat have a significant percentage that have been counseled, some for a protracted time frame, but this isn't a factor either. Many in law enforcement need counseled from time to time, but this doesn't count. Most departments require psychological counseling if an officer is involved in a police involved shooting by a rule, and it's a good one. Can you imagine if this was a factor? They would lose their jobs potentially if they couldn't possess a firearm after the fact. The issue is whether one was in a state that they had to be hospitalized from the condition. That would require a "yes" response.
