Potential Perrmanant Immigration Denial to the USA

Hello r/immigration, I am a student going into my third year of university in the UK, whilst I would normally look for advice on the UKlegaladvice Subreddit the issue is more america centric. My Family has applied for an EB5 visa for permanant residency in the United States of America and I am currently apart of the application. We have been approved to go for medical and interviews at the Embassy in London however a large problem has cropped up to do with my medical history and is the reason I have marked this post NSFW. I have a history of self harm and have been formally diagnosed with depression and anxiety by my GP and a therapist at my university and have been prescribed medications such as fluoxetine, setroline and cilitropram. I have not self harmed in 2 years coming up this december however my scars are still clearly visible and I have neither taken my medication in 5 months as they just make my mental state worse, this is has not been disclosed to my GP. There are a number of valid reasons for my self abuse from bullying and abuse to loved ones passing away and academic stress.

I understand that mental problems and harmful actions cause you to be inadmissable to the USA and I know that you can apply for a medical waiver if you fail the medical exam, I was just wondering what are the chances of this and does it happen often or whether I might stand a better chance I should remove myself from the application and apply again through sponsership or some other route if the rest of my family are approved after I have had a skin graft done, but this seems like such a waste given how much money and time has been spent (coming upto 5 years). I was also wondering whether they request medical records as this second option would be not be useful in that case.

My family know about my situation and have informed their lawyer tackling this application, however they have had no experience of this situation before.

I want to move out to america desperatly and get away from my previous life, but this is the final hurdle blocking me from pursuing this dream. Thanks for any advice you can offer :)

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
