Any jobs that mental health problems disqualify you from?

Particularly having OCD? I'm really worried, I got a conditional offer for a job as a carer in a residential home and I have had to do a pre employment medical questionnaire. I told the truth on there, that I have taken meds for OCD during the past year. My OCD's under control now, which I put on there, but I don't have much evidence of that other than just saying, I feel fine.

I know that employers can't withdraw a job offer due to a disability but could they argue that it would not be appropriate for someone with mental health problems to care for and support vulnerable people who also have mental health problems? Has anyone had any experience with this?

There are anti-discriminatory laws that apply to mental illness. What happened?
