Given that sometimes the marks might not be publicly obvious or might normally be easily publicly hidden, how do you cope with disclosure when it comes to a partner or potential partner?

Are they already aware you have mental health issues? Do you have someone in mind you want to tell? Everyone is different and depending on the persons own life experience and understanding would help me decide how I would tell them, if that makes sense?
