Researchers at the University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research are studying the psychological and biological characteristics of children who have a parent with a current or past history of Panic Disorder. Panic Disorder is an anxiety condition that runs in families and has a genetic basis. People with Panic Disorder experience recurrent panic attacks and anticipatory fear of future attacks. The results of this study will be used to develop an intervention program for preventing panic disorder in children at risk.

**This study requires 2 visits**

Your child will be invited to come back for follow-up visits after 1 year and 2 years

Children will be financially compensated for their participation

Criteria for Participation:

● Your child is between 7-18 years of age

● Your child has no history of psychiatric illness and no major medical problems

For more information, contact: 613-798-2995 mailbox #4 or toll-free 1-866-739-4197 and clearly state your name and telephone number.

The University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research is located at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, a specialized mental health facility for residents of northeastern Ontario. All inquiries are confidential. This research protocol has been approved by the Research Ethics Board.

I am just curious.
I have had panic disorder for over 12 years, but neither of my parents, nor any other family members (that I know of) have the disorder, and I hear that it's a genetic disorder.
Can it skip generations? Or is there a possibility that in some cases it's not genetic?
I'm just curious. Thanks for your attention.

I'm in the same category as sasha except for one uncle who had minor OCD all his life. He was my mother's brother. There's 13 aunts and uncles as well as my parents and none of them had anxiety disorder. Or maybe they did and didn't tell anyone. I am very interested in this subject area.
