New genetic tests are being developed to help test if you are a sociopath, narcissist or genetologist, with the aim of offering greater clarity about mental illness, and helping those with mental health issues.
The tests are aimed at those who have been diagnosed with psychiatric illnesses, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and have been unable to get help from their primary care doctors, according to Dr Srinivas Mukherjee, a psychiatrist who leads the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
The new tests were launched on Tuesday by NIMH and the University of California, Berkeley, and are based on the same process as the more than 2,000 tests currently in use across the world, including the National Health Service (NHS), and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The tests take around a week to complete, and take a sample of blood from people who are currently diagnosed with mental illnesses and who then undergo a series of tests.
These tests can tell doctors how well they understand a patient’s symptoms and personality, and what types of treatments they may need, according the National Mental Health Association (NMHA).
“If you are diagnosed with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder and you are looking for a test to diagnose whether or not you have a mental illness that is affecting your life, this test is the way to go,” said Dr Mukherji.
“The genetic test has the potential to offer more information than just a diagnosis.”
But the NIMHD said the tests were also not yet reliable, and that patients could still be suffering from psychological and emotional issues.
“This type of testing has not been rigorously validated, and it is still early days,” said David Jablonski, executive director of the NMHA.
Mukherjee said he was hoping that the new genetic tests would help people understand the symptoms and symptoms of mental illness and identify how best to treat those who may have a condition.
“It is very early days in this field, but it will help us get a better understanding of the mental health of people who suffer from mental health conditions,” he said.
One of the genetic tests being developed by Nimh aims to test people’s ability to understand and relate to a person’s feelings.
It will also assess how well people can read a person and their feelings.
The test will also look at people’s social skills and how they are able to work and interact with others.
Dr Mukherjis work is funded by the National Institutes of Health, and his study is being conducted in collaboration with Dr David Jalfresi, a professor at the University at Albany in New York, who is also a member of the NIH.
The genetic tests, which are not currently being offered to the general public, are part of a $30 million initiative to develop new treatments for people with mental illness.
Last year, the NIH launched the National Genetic Testing Initiative, an effort to develop and improve genetic tests to better help people with the illness, said Dr Jalfre.
This new research will be funded by Nimbels $50 million National Mental Hospital Fund, and will also be supported by the Federal Health Care Research and Quality Fund, which provides $100 million annually for research on mental health.
But some patients, including those who suffer with depression, have not benefited from the new tests.
Many have complained that the tests do not help them understand their mental health condition and are not reliable.
In June, a survey conducted by the Pew Research Centre revealed that only 16% of US adults had seen a psychologist since they were diagnosed with a mental health disorder.
In the UK, the National Association of GPs also said that only 15% of those surveyed had seen their GP in the last year, and only 12% of GP appointments in the UK were conducted by an RN.
And Dr Jafre told the BBC that many people may struggle to understand mental health and mental health disorders because they do not know what is wrong with them.
“They may feel very disconnected from their illness, they may feel disconnected from other people, they feel disconnected with their friends and family, and they may be unable to communicate with others,” he explained.
A new study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders said that many patients who have a psychological disorder may struggle with how to deal with it.
People who suffer mental illnesses have many challenges with communication, and can be very difficult to communicate to and understand,” said lead author Dr Anil Verma.
They are also at greater risk of developing depression and anxiety.
According to the National Center for Comorbidity Research and Prevention (NCCRP), more than 4,000 people are currently living with mental disorders, and the number of people living with serious mental illnesses is projected to reach more than 17,000 by
