Mental Illness

I have a question for you all:

Would you date someone who has mental illness(es) who is  on medication and working towards getting better?

How would you want it presented to you? Do you want the person to inform you straight off or do you think you would need to get to know them some before you can handle that information?

I'm just curious because I suffer from mental illness. Several in fact and I was curious to see what the general consensus is on this topic.

Personally, to me, mental illness is no different than diabetes. So long as the person is in treatment, and doing what they can to keep the symptoms under control I am happy. I like to see a drive to improve, get healthy in my partners and to me this is no different.
