In brief: No

In fact, based on the hippa laws, a doctor may not release any information about a patient, without the patient's permission.
One percent of the population has schizophrenia. This translates into about 3, 000, 000 americans.

In brief: No

Generally, the government requires reporting epidemic diseases, or those that spread easily and are hard to treat.
Schizophrenia is non-contagious and does not constitute a public health hazard in that sense. No reporting is needed.
