What questions can I be asked if I am offered the job?
If you are successful in your job application, then your prospective employer can ask you about your health. If, as a result of these questions, a prospective employer is concerned that your mental health problems may affect your ability to perform the job, they should seek more information or advice from your doctor or occupational health.
If your job offer is taken away when you explain your mental health status, and without further assessment or investigation, this may be direct discrimination.
