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.
