I generally do not tell, for the simple reason that most people don't know what depression, etc, is, beyond some simplistic notion of "crazy" or "mental case". Of course, if you work among educated health progessionals or the like, that might be different - but how many of us are in that situation?
I think that mental health is one of the last great taboos in the general society. It's not OK to discriminate against a guy in a wheelchair, but a mental health problem, thats a different story.
For every positive step in the media, Tipper Gore "coming out", Rod Steiger recently on the Larry King Show, there's two or three stories about mass shootings where the perpetrator "had been proscribed Prozac".
For me, it's just a case of "would this person really know what to do with this information if I gave it to them."
