Informing the suitor about the woman’s psychological problems

Question 11: I have two sisters, one of whom suffered from a psychological illness, but she has recovered now, praise be to Allaah. However, she cannot stop taking medicine; she is going to take them for the rest of her life.

Please advise. May Allaah guide you.
