Schizophrenia - This disorder is also linked to genetics. This illness distorts an individual's way of thinking, feeling and behaving. It can cause them to be reckless and dangerous. According to mayoclinic.com, "The exact cause of schizophrenia isn't known, but a combination of genetics, environment, and altered brain chemistry and structure may play a role. Schizophrenia is characterized by thoughts or experiences that seem out of touch with reality, disorganized speech or behavior, and decreased participation in daily activities. Difficulty with concentration and memory may also be present.
Bipolar Disorder - Swinging from manic states to major depressive ones, bipolar disorder can be scary, hard to deal with, and very challenging for anyone, directly or indirectly. There have been studies done to link this disorder to genetics.
Anxiety - While this disorder can be general or severe, it can also be linked to genetics. A family with many sufferers of anxiety will find cases of it in each generation. While it can be effectively treated holistically, it can still be passed down through generations.
We hope this information helps you better understand how your ancestry might be a part of a mental illness you're suffering from. While not all disorders are genetically linked there are a few.
