Seeking volunteers to help investigate the role of genetics in mental health

Researchers are seeking volunteers with at least 25% African ancestry who have a diagnosis of bipolar 1 disorder, schizoaffective disorder, or schizophrenia. They are also looking for volunteers without any psychiatric diagnoses to serve as controls. During a one-time visit, volunteers will complete a symptom questionnaire and have a blood draw for genetic analysis. They will be compensated for their time.
