You have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder.
You have been prescribed medication to treat major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder.
You are willing to provide a saliva sample for DNA testing.
You are willing to complete online study sessions over the course of nine months. Each study session takes between 10-30 minutes and may include surveys and a series of cognitive tests online.

If you have been diagnosed with major depression, or bipolar disorder I, or bipolar disorder II by a medical professional and you meet the other criteria listed above, you may be eligible to participate in this study.

Your total time invested will be approximately two hours over nine months, with each session lasting between 10 to 30 minutes.

Is it sad that this might be the catalyst for getting me to talk to a doctor?

I think this maybe used for collecting samples of DNA of people who have depression or bipolar, use it as a DNA test to identify depression or bipolar in the future.

How depressing.
The good news is that now I qualify.

No, I think whatever it takes is ok. It takes a lot of guts to go out of your comfort zone and seek help. I would encourage you to at the very least, seek more information.

Best of luck to you. Everyone needs a nudge every now and then.

The info is being used for gene editing research.

Start with a social worker. Unless you are suicidal, think carefully about seeking medical attention as a first step based on nothing more than an assumption that that is what you are supposed to do or that it is your only option.

Thanks for this OP. In the last 8 months I have been on probably 10+ different meds fighting... were not even sure any more. I have always wanted to do 23andme and I am very happy for the opportunity not just for me but to participate in research.


* Also... it's getting a slickdeals hug of death because my survey submissions are timing out. I might have to complete these surveys later.

This. And as bait goes to find research subjects, this offer is pretty pathetic and cruelly cynical.

what does the end user even get out of this? do they give you a DNA report, or are they just collecting yours so they can use it to identify potential markers for depression?
