Addressing mental health issues is more important now than ever, particularly for those of us struggling with the isolation, fear, relationship challenges and financial stressors that characterize our current environment. Using the same saliva specimen submitted for COVID-19 testing, Verdosome can perform a one-time mental health genetics analysis. Our panel identifies a number of genes that may play a role in an individual’s stress response, decision making abilities and susceptibility to mental health issues. These include a patient’s predisposition towards depression, addiction and anxiety disorders. While genetics are only one factor that may influence the development of these conditions, understanding their potential contribution to a patient’s overall well-being may help prompt proactive health choices and behavioral modifications that could contribute to improved outcomes.
Our staff will partner with human resources and other relevant departments to develop a testing regimen that suits your workplace’s unique needs. This may include daily, weekly or monthly testing, spot testing of symptomatic or virus-exposed employees, collection support, courier services, report interpretation and more.
