Discussion Thread topic: How does a Biological disability impact the psychological realms of an individual? Give one specific example.
Biology, just like the environment, has a significant impact on the psychological wellbeing of humans. Genetics, the brain, medical issues, and health habits can all contribute to mental problems. Genetic predisposition is known to cause mental health disorders in populations. For example, the DISC1 gene has often been associated with schizophrenia. It does not mean that everyone with this gene will have to develop schizophrenia. However, they are more likely to develop the condition when triggered by environmental factors such as alcohol and stressful environment.
