Disclosing a diagnosis of mental health issues/personality disorder to a prospective employer
I have had anxiety and depression for a number of years and a recent provisional diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder. Because I have had some bad experiences with managers/supervisors (the most recent being in the last year) who have known about my condition and have not been very understanding or accommodating and used them as ammunition against me, I am reluctant to disclose this information to a prospective employer. But, is it worth mentioning a provisional but not official diagnosis of a personality disorder and how it affects you to the person who could one day be your manager?
