I have a few questions regarding disclosure of personal medical information when it comes to registering/applying for a license. If you have Schizophrenia and have been hospitalized for it several times can the board find out about it if you dont disclose it? On an application/registration for my state it asks specifically if you have this illness and says that you may be disqualified if you do. Can the FBI background checks reveal it if you lie and say you do not have the disorder? Can MEPS find out?

It seems to me that you might run a significant risk if you lie on your application about your health problem. I think your best bet is to tell the truth and send along a statement from your doctor. If the doctor says you are okay to work, how would it be different than any other treatable health concern? (I can understand that you would want to keep mental health issues to yourself though!) Good luck:wink2:
