Is your illness well-managed? If so, you can truthfully say that your license was suspended once and/or you left a job due to a medical problem, but that reason no longer exists. Granted, psychiatric disorders don't go away, but as long as you can 'maintain' and be professional, there need be no further forays into your private life by a potential employer.
FWIW, I've been very up-front with my current employer about my own diagnosis, but I would never apply for a new position and tell the interviewer "Oh, yeah, I should probably tell you that I'm bipolar and may need special accommodations to do my job".
I'm not sure how I WOULD go about it, because after I reach a certain point in a cycle I can no longer hide the fact that I have a problem, and then the cat would be out of the bag for good. Thankfully I haven't had to test my theory.....at least not yet.
