A significant number of difficulties that are associated with one's mental health might have origins that can be traced back to childhood. Gaining an understanding of the processes that explain how psychosocial experiences are physically imprinted and how they effect lifelong development is the primary challenge that faces the several mental health professions today. In recent years, epigenetic processes have come to the forefront as a probable mechanism that can regulate the long-term sensitivity that might be a direct result of having experienced trauma. This has been the case since epigenetic processes have been linked to a number of diseases, including cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Animal models provide evidence to support the notion that early-life trauma can create lasting epigenetic modifications in the brain, which drive disorder-like behaviour.
