MECC - supporting the physical health of people with severe mental illness       

10 May 2022 │ 1:00pm - 2:00pm

This webinar will raise awareness of the 'mortality gap' for people with SMI and suggest how increased risk of physical health problems can be identified and how we can support people to reduce this risk.

Prof Carolyn Chew-Graham will outline the evidence for the higher mortality from physical health problems in people with SMI. David and Carolyn will discuss what can be done to better identify and manage physical health problems in people with SMI. We will highlight opportunities for all health and social care practitioners to help people with SMI manage their health. Learning objectives include:

  • To raise awareness of physical health problems in people with SMI and the resulting 'mortality gap'
  • To help participants identify how they can identify risks of, and established, physical health problems and work with people with SMI to reduce the impact of physical health problems

Challenging mental health inequalities

Certain population subgroups are at higher risk of mental health problems because of greater exposure and vulnerability to unfavourable social, economic, and environmental circumstances.

These intersect with factors including gender, ethnicity and disability, with devastating circumstances in many cases.
