Hi Dr. Price,

Hope you are having a nice weekend.

wondering how to disclose past mental illness to a shidduch - any tips? I recovered from serious mental illness b"h almost 10 years ago. Thank you

Depends on your community. Some do not disclose at all and some feel bound to disclose everything.

I would be interested to get some response from the gedolim about shiduchim and mental health issues
My understanding is that the only issues that you have to be modia is the one's that you think will end up effecting the marriage
When you speak to the shadchan try to sound confident The only issues he needs to know is the one's that are visible on the first date let's say if you are handicapped you need to state that
Because the girl has certain expectations of you
But what you tell the girl after the third date should stay between you and her These are the issues that you think can will affect marriage
Saying too much is not good It could only scare her away Rather have a story prepared in your own words
Remember she is a human being no a doctor So tell her from the human side
That's my two cents
