I'm actually majoring in Psych. ^_^ I'm only in first year, so my experience of psychology profs is limited, but it seems to me that if anyone is going to be understanding of your mental state and that being a little crazy doesn't make you less of a person, it's probably your teachers. I feel more nervous about being judged by my classmates, as I already get glared at enough for the way I look.

If you do feel comfortable enough, it might actually be really cool and informative for your class to come in like Racer and talk about your experience. North American culture is fairly accepting of mental illness, but even then, many people have misconceptions, or questions about what it's really like. Certainly, even if it's embarrassing or awkward, informing your teachers if you think your mental health might interfere with your schoolwork--even if you're just having trouble focusing--can be helpful.
