Mental illness represents a major problem for affected individuals, for their loved ones, and for society at large. Many mental disorders have a substantial genetic component, but until recently very little consistent data existed regarding the underpinnings of these complex and multifactorial conditions.

As more and more robust genetic risk variants are identified, we are now beginning to understand the physiological mechanisms that go awry in psychiatric disorders, and therefore how we might treat them more effectively. Now is an opportune time to reflect on recent successes within the field of psychiatric genetics, to delineate ways to move forward, and to consider the impact of the discipline across many diverse sectors of society.
