The GeneSight Mental Health Monitor finds that more than half of primary care physicians surveyed believe their patients are unaware that they are trained and equipped to diagnose and treat mental health conditions.
Michele Long conducts a GeneSight test on a patient diagnosed with depression. With a simple cheek swab, the test provides clinicians with a patient’s unique genetic information that indicates which medications may require dose adjustments, be less likely to work, or have an increased risk of side effects.
The GeneSight Mental Health Monitor is a nationwide survey of U.S. adults conducted online by ACUPOLL Precision Research, Inc. from Aug. 16 – 30, 2022, among a statistically representative sample (n=1000) of adults age 18+. The survey included a representative sample of women diagnosed with depression and anxiety. The margin of error in survey results for the total base population at a 95% confidence interval is +/- 3%.
