Core Tip Neuropsychiatric Disorders (NPDs) constitute a heavy burden on public health systems around the world. Studies have demonstrated that the negative impact of NPDs is larger in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs). However, few neuropsychiatric genetics studies have been published from LMICs. In this Editorial, we discuss important issues impinging on advances in neuropsychiatric genetics research in LMICs. It is essential that scientists educate policymakers and officials of funding agencies on the importance of providing adequate funding for research in these areas. Development of local research programs focused on NPD genetics should be an important asset to develop in LMICs.
