The Use of Human Skin in the Creation of Cellular Models of Neuropsychiatric Disorders

The purpose of this research study is to collect, process and store samples to do research on neuropsychiatric disorders. This research study looks at changes in the human body associated with neuropsychiatric disorders. Part of this study involves the collection of skin and blood samples that will be stored in a tissue bank for later use. Research using these samples will attempt to identify causes and what helps prevent, treat, or cure neuropsychiatric disorders.  In addition, the samples collected for this study will be used for genetic research on these diseases.
