In brief: Yes

Information on these forms helps the student health service respond more helpfully to you.
Physicians and nurses staffing the student health service need to know your past medical history, the same as your primary care doctor would. Symptoms of depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts count as medical issues needing care. There may be student health psychiatrists on staff as well.

In brief: I say NO

Sadly, as a psychiatrist, these institutions are victorian at best in their attitude toward ''mental'' difficulties.
However, you must discuss this with your psychiatrist--not psychologist or mftt, or social worker ad infinitum. If you are not getting the medical help you need and deserve, do call theamer. Psychoanalytic ass. In nyc. Sliding scale available. Tomorrow!
