It's understandable that you did not want to provide information about your mental health when asked to disclose medical records, my view would be that you should have been full and frank in the disclosure previously though - it doe snot make you look weak at all.
However, you should disclose this now if it has an impact on your LSPO application.
It's important for you to be humble about this if possible, and not defensive, if that makes sense?
The court may not be impressed that you failed to disclose everything previously but as it is not going to impact on timescales for this hearing or cause a delay there should not be any costs implications for you.
I hope that this assists?
It could help the application as it shows why representation is so important for you.
You could also argue that your mental health was not relevant to the division of assets, nor is it going to be, yet it is extremely relevant for this particular application.
