Mental Health Family Tree
Do you or any of your family members
Wonder if mood disorders run in your family?
Wish to work with your clinician better, to get well?
Need a way to help your family understand that depressive disorders can be treated and are not a shameful family secret?
Similar to other medical conditions like heart disease or certain cancers, mood disorders often run in families. Knowing and sharing your family’s mental health history can help a healthcare provider get you or a family member well.
After completing a simple questionnaire, you can print an easy-to-read “family tree” that maps the existence of behaviors associated with depression or bipolar disorder in your family. You can then share this family tree with your provider or family. This builder is completely anonymous and your personal information will not be saved.
