Even before I studied Psychology I always had an interest in the subject. One of my favourite debates is “nature vs nuture”. I will say here, I don’t think anything is solely one of the other – I think it’s a blend of factors.
However, interacting with lots of people on Twitter with mental health problems has got me thinking. How many of them have family members with a mental health issue? Whilst this won’t tell me whether the cause of their’s is genetic, or because they’ve grown up surrounded by it; it will get the ball rolling.
I’d be really grateful if you could spend a few seconds completing the poll below and sharing it with your friends / contacts.
