Don't be worried.
If you put something down that they have cause for concern about you will be asked to meet with an occupation health professional. They will chat to you about it to ensure you are able to undertake the work involved and not be a risk to yourself or the young people you will be in charge of.
Honestly...it's a good idea to be really honest. Declare anything you have been diagnosed with and/or that may have affected you and your work or study in the past so that if it does crop up during your studies they will have a support structure in place.
Note: You will also have to fill out these medical questionnaires for any teaching post you apply for once qualified...so best to start out being 100% honest.
From my point of view, unless you'll be declaring that you're a sociopathic agoraphobic with suicidal tendencies who has sexual feelings towards young children that you feel compelled to act up.... I think it'll be alright.

How organised are LSBU when it comes to placements? When do you find out? What do they take into account when matching you up?
