Given the presence of suicidal ideation, I don't think it's unreasonable to request a psychiatric assessment as a precondition for you having more access to the kids. I think it would be in your best interests to comply with that request, and to also make available as much information as you can about the treatment you are undergoing, along with any reports about the progress you are making (in other words, to make your medical record available).

As for access, could you propose at "step-up" schedule by which you start with supervised access and move to unsupervised access over a period of 8-12 months, so that you have the opportunity to prove that you are doing well and making progress?

Kudos to you for recognizing your issues and getting help, by the way. There are a lot of posters here who could learn from your examples.
