Welcome in the realm of mental illness...

... you risk be deemed "dangerous" and thereby treated as such. And it's a very difficult assessment to make.

There was that guy who crashed the plane into a mountain because nobody reported his mental state could have been very dangerous.

Meanwhile, in another European country, I had issues renewing my driving license because I was treated briefly with "psychiatric drugs" due to a depression caused by a very bad moment in my life, three years before (yet nobody suspended the license back then because there was really no reason).

It's a matter so complex, and without a proper science to assess and treat it, that legislation goes from pilots in charge of hundreds of lives who cannot be grounded on privacy grounds, to people who get restrictions just because there's a record they've been treated...
