Dear Dr. Price,

I have recently read an article written by Rabbi Kaganoff (on his website rabbikaganoff.com) about the issue of revealing a health issue to relevant party when the time comes. In the article he had stated that that obligation does not apply to the shadchan.
He basically explained that that early on the issue might not be relevant and that different people might have different definitions of what they consider an "issue" where revealing the issue early could actually be counterproductive.

There could also be an issue of saying lashon hara about yourself unnecessarily.

In my opinion what he is saying seems to be correct I am just not sure how to approach the issue with the shadchan if asked directly.
What is your take on this?

Cases by case basis. Some conditions are relatively minor and some can be major that need to be disclosed.

Thank you for your response
Is mental health in general considered a major or a minor issue in regards to this and does it depend on the functioning level of the individual?
