Genetic research of psychiatric disorders has evolved considerably over the last 45 or so years. In the 1960s it was not generally thought by most clinicians and many researchers that major psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, and depression had a genetic contribution. Genetic studies of these conditions were largely encouraged by findings that children of women with schizophrenia who were born at a state hospital, adopted out, and raised by families who were not mentally ill had schizophrenia.
