A product of the US-based precision health company Genomind, the Genomind Mental Health Map is the first-ever genetic test available directly to consumers that is designed specifically for mental wellness. It provides powerful new insights and actions through 7 in-depth reports analyzing mental health predispositions. Clients are also provided a free consultation to help them better understand their results. The test however does not give recommendations on which medication to take.
Using their expertise, Genomind curated hundreds of the world’s genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and candidate gene studies to provide the framework and content for the Mental Health Map™ and the 7 Core Genetic Mental Health Capabilities™. These are mood, eating behavior, social behavior, stress and anxiety, focus and memory, sleep, habits, and substance use. It analyzes 38 genetic variants and their influence on 29 mental health traits
Genomind believes in transparency which is why the evidence summary is openly available, as well as the scoring of gene-trait pairs.
