I can only imagine not too far in the future, genetic mapping of the general population with be stepped up after going through a number of legal challenges.

Well, families with these disorders among members may want genetic mapping.  Of course, monozygotic twins have a better chance of sharing disorders, though it cannot be ruled out with other family members.  It is also interesting that environment does play a role.  Poverty seems to increase chances of developing psychiatric disorders. It's a big field, and one would really have to research to see how deep this goes.  Just from taking one class, I studied some of the risk factors and studies such as the one noted in the NY Times were included in the text (how genetics plays a role, abnormalities in certain chromosones, etc.). 

It's interesting to read about.  Thanks for the link.
