  Mental retardation is a leading feature of many mendelian syndromes. In addition, studies in mental institutions such as those of Priest et al. () and of Wright et al. () show that mental retardation of unclassified type occurs in multiple sibs in a considerable number of cases. Some of these doubtless represent rare recessive disorders. High-income societies in general have high levels of mental disorder and an increase in rates in the past three decades, and Northern Ireland is no exception. However, evidence suggests that the years of violence associated with the Troubles in Northern Ireland have been an additional burden and have contributed to high rates of chronic and severe mental health problems and substance misuse.

More details of the relationships involved were given by Scally (), who, in a study from Northern Ireland, found that people out of 4, identified as being mentally retarded had either been married (with or without offspring) or were single, but had had at least one pregnancy.   Mental health and behavioural problems are common among students commencing university. University life can be stressful and problems often exacerbate during their course of study, while others develop disorders for the first time.

David McConnell. The normal and bright children of mentally retarded parents are statistically a small group, but are at serious risk for adjustment problems. Half those studied had negative adaptions, one-fourth took the parent's role, and one-fourth showed normal adjustment.

The most important factor in the differential outcome is the presence, duration, and quality of the parents' social support.

Chapter 3 - The mental health of children and young people in Northern Ireland The evidence suggests that the Troubles may have contributed to poor mental health within Northern Ireland, both through their impact on the social and economic circumstances of individuals and neighbourhoods, and more directly via trauma, bereavement and violence.
