Etiological Issues

Mental health discussions, both conceptual and practical, frequently involve as important considerations the issue of whether problems originate from environmental as opposed to genetic causes. A good general starting position is that they also certainly invariably involve both (see, for example, Genes, Brains, and Behavior), but the details, balance, and therapeutic implications are different in each case. The following links are intended both to promote general discussion and to allow further exploration of particular cases.

These resource lists are being maintained by Debbie Plotnick, working with Paul Grobstein, Department of Biology, and James Martin, School of Social Work and Social Research, at Bryn Mawr College. Suggestions for additions to the list are welcome, as are more general thoughts about how to most effectively make available information, and promote conversation, about issues of mental health.
