Mental health

Nearly one in five adults in the U.S. lives with a mental illness, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Most conditions respond well to the right treatment, allowing individuals to live comfortable, happy lives.
 

But for those who need medication, finding the right prescription for your specific condition (or conditions) can take months or even years. Gravity+ is passionate about helping you find the right medicine as quickly as possible. It starts with a simple cheek swab at home to get a sample of your DNA.

PHARMACOGENETIC (PGX) TESTING FOR MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS

Two of the most common mental health issues are anxiety and depression, with 42% of U.S. adults reporting symptoms of one of these disorders in 2021, according to the CDC.

Feeling sad or overwhelmed occasionally may not interfere with tasks of daily living, but ongoing, persistent feelings of hopelessness, fear, or worry can disrupt life and lead to physical health issues or even substance abuse.
