Barry Milne, researcher at the University of Auckland; and Mark Peterson, NZ Medical Association.
New research has highlighted the significance of family history when it comes to mental illness, and GPs are being urged to routinely take their patients family history of mental health issues as well as physical diseases.
The findings come from the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study, which has followed a thousand people born at Queen Mary Hospital in Dunedin in 1972-73 from birth through to age 32.
The researchers have been tracking the physical and mental health and lifestyles of study members since they were three years old.
