    As you know, PTSD affects families during their time together. Do genetics play a part? Or is it just being in the same place at the same time and the accompanying experiences that are the key?

    If the children of suicide victims are twice as likely to kill themselves. Then the possibility of the behavior of those who suffer from PTSD can transfer may be possible. But with PTSD it may be different because the behavior of PTSD is learned. Everything that our children see or hear is etched into they’re innocent brains. Now the genetics of it all is a question for someone with PHD.
    However, some mental disorders do transfer through genetics.
