Here is a picture of Richard Stevick. He is a longtime professor friend and author. His most recent book is "Growing Up Amish: The Rumspringa Years". He is now involved in a very important genetics study. He and his colleagues are trying to bring about earlier diagnosis and better treatment for bi-polar and /or schizophrenic disorders. I believe this is a very important study. If any of your relations, church members or community from the Amish or Mennonites might be willing to provide a simple blood sample and answer questions in their situation, they will receive $50.00 for their involvement. Most of all they could provide information that may change the course of the history of mental health treatment.
