There are countless of reasons why mental health concern can develop in you or within your family. If you struggle with one mental health issue, then you know that it can feel like a complex problem that is too much too for many. There are biological components, emotional components, and genetic components, meaning some mental health issues run in families!
Quoting Ravi N. Shah, MD, assistant professor of psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center: “Several mental illnesses have at least some genetic component … “Remember that the vast majority of mental illnesses are not strictly heritable by a single gene. Rather, they are more similar to a complex trait such as height or intelligence. That means that broadly speaking, a family history of mental illness raises the risk of mental illness in patients on average.” But that doesn’t mean they’re necessarily guaranteed.
Shah continued: “The exact cause of most mental illnesses is not known, but genetic and environmental factors interact to increase (or decrease) the risk of mental illness for any particular individual.” It’s the whole “nature versus nurture” thing.
