Yes I hear a lot of people who work in mental health have a mental illness themselves.

I suppose it depends how bad it affects you or how you are coping on meds

In the US, it depends. On the licensing exam there is a question about whether you have ever been involuntarily hospitalized. If you answer yes, I think your case gets individually reviewed.
