Is mental illness genetic?

In short, every mental illness is different. Some mental illnesses appear to run in families, such as depression and bipolar disorder. On the other hand, post-traumatic stress disorder from trauma is situationally based on the traumatic event that the person experienced. In reality, both a person’s genetics and their environment will contribute to their mental wellness (or illness), but neither will guarantee that a mental disorder will develop.
