Abstract

Background and objectives The physical health of people with seriousmentalillness is a cause of growing concern to clinicians. Life expectancy in this population may be reduced by up to 25 years and patients often live with considerable physical morbidity that can dramatically reduce quality of life and contribute to social exclusion. This study sought to determine whether the seriousmentalillnesshealthimprovementprofile [HIP], facilitated by mentalhealth nurses [MHNs], has the clinical potential to identify physical morbidity and inform future evidence-based care.
