Depression and Anxiety - Break Throughs on the Horizon

Depression and Anxiety might be curable in the not too distant future. Promise and Hope. There has been very much research being financed and conducted with regards to identifying certain genes that "might" be responsible for mental illness. Several studies have shown that certain environmental stressors could be responsible for the genetics that lead to anxiety and depression. Other studies have claimed to find the genes and a way of manipulating these genes to actually "cure" depression and anxiety instead of simply treating the symptoms.

I have posted several articles on this site as well as psychiatrist scottsdale. Please continue to check out this site and the "Articles of Interest" tab on As we enter this age of genetic in mental health; the impact will be of the greatest significance. We know that mental illness affects a large portion of our population; and its consequences even a larger segment of our population. The sooner we can get these diseases, the better off we will all be. Especially since it seems as though mental illness has almost been epidemic over the past 20 years. Now I say this cautiously because these figures can be skewed by many factors such as the illnesses be less stigmatized, therefore many more are acknowledging their illnesses, or that we have more treatments available so more people are coming forward to acknowledge their illness. Or it could be that our environment of pollutants in our air, water, food and levels of stress in our lives is actually adding to the incidences of various illnesses.
