Mental health and neurodevelopmental disorders are highly heritable and can affect morbidity and mortality. A large, growing body of evidence has implicated both common and rare variation in the risk of these disorders. Testing for rare variants, such as copy number variants, has been available in clinical practice for some time in the context of developmental disorders. However, until recently, individuals with mental health and neurodevelopmental disorders in the UK have not tended to access genetic counselling and testing. Here, we describe the development of the All Wales Psychiatric Genomics Service, a collaborative effort between psychiatric and clinical genetics services and the first of its kind in the UK. We provide an overview of the structure and function of the service, our referral criteria, a summary of the 40 referrals we have received to date and our future plans.
