I believe there are many genetic consulting services available to the general public. There is some controversy with the allowable access insurance companies have to your data.

Yes, but. Get in touch with your family physician and they can direct you to a genetic counselor who can offer you detailed information on available tests. They aren't prevalent because of the risks associated with the results. A lot of the screens are still unrealiable at this point so you are unlikely to get definitive answers, especially when it comes to mental illness.
