    Abstract: Despite compelling evidence that some patients with a psychiatric diagnosis could benefit from genetic assessment, genetic testing for psychiatric patients is underutilized. Few studies have reported psychiatric genetics training for mental health specialists, and such research is especially lacking in Spain. We aimed to gather the opinions of Spanish mental health residents, including resident intern nurses (RINs), doctors (RIDs) and psychologists (RIPs). A short survey was prepared by an expert team and distributed to all mental health residency centers in Spain during the first semester of 2021. Of the 2028 residents, 18% responded. Participants were mainly females (71%), in their first year of residency (37%) and within the 27-31-year age range. While participants received little theoretical (13.4%) and practical (4.6%) training on average, RIDs had the most affirmative responses. Notably, RINs and RIDs were interested in genetics during residency (>40%) and strongly believed (85.0%) that genetics training using both theoretical and practical methodologies should be incorporated into residency training. However, RIPs were less interested (20%), and only 60% believed that genetics training should be incorporated. Spanish mental health residents, although interested in genetics in psychiatry, receive little training on this topic. They strongly believe that genetics training using theoretical and practical methodologies should be incorporated.© 2023 The Authors. Clinical Genetics published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
