If you or a loved one is struggling with mental illness, here are action steps you can take: 1. Go to Genomind.com. Genomind is a personalized medicine company that works with clinicians to provide the testing. You can request a list of clinicians in your geographic area that perform the genetic testing through Genomind here: https://genomind.com/the-genecept-assay/patients/request-preferred-provider/  You can also call Genomind at 877-895-8658 with any questions you may have regarding finding a provider or anything else about the process. 2. If you already have a psychiatrist, ask if they use genetic testing in their practice. If not, you can refer them to Genomind (https://genomind.com/), and they can order a test kit. Genomind's clinical team can help advise your doctor on how to interpret the results once they are returned. You can bring them the following information sheet as well to help explain: https://23jdccbe7rc2cgr3u3ouklgi-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/one-pager.pdf 3. Once the test kit is ordered, the doctor will swab your cheek and send the sample to Genomind's lab. 4. Genomind will analyze key genes in your body's DNA that can affect how it responds to medication. This can help your clinician understand if a drug may work for you before you even try it. (In my case, it was a lack of serotonin transporters and conversion of an amino acid into serotonin.) 5. Genomind will send the report to the ordering clinician, so they can use the information to prescribe medication that targets your specific variants. THIS is how psychiatry needs to be practiced in the 21st century! The more patients demand this technology, the more available it will become, and the more we as a culture will recognize that chemical deficits in the brain are not more shameful than in other organs in the body. Note: I am not getting paid by Genomind to post this. This company saved my life, so I obviously support what they are doing.
