Physical Health Care for People with Severe Mental Illness

This half-day, interactive course will look at ways to improve the physical health of patients with severe mental illness.

The course is for primary care staff providing annual health checks to service users with complex mental and physical health needs. It will cover how physical health monitoring brings better outcomes for service users with serious mental illness, while considering co-morbidities whereby mental health problems among people with physical illnesses are costly for both the health system and wider society.
