When to tell a future employer that you have a mental illness

I have done some research on when you should tell a future employer that you have a mental illness in an interview. What i have found out is that you should only tell your interviewer that you have a mental illness if they ask you about your past performances in your previous jobs. just explain what happened and then tell them that it will not effect your performance in this job and that you will have a doctors note explaining your condition and that it will not affect your job performance. If they are understanding they will hire you and that is a good sign that you can trust them with any of your issues that you may have in the future with them. by law they can not discriminate against you for your mental illness. I did this research because in the past i was too honest with my interviews and it back fired on me. When the time comes and if they ask you about your past performances than you can explain to the interviewer your situation. otherwise it is not necessary to tell them anything about your mental health.
