Reducing Inequalities in Mental Illness

People with severe and enduring mental illness are at greater risk of poor physical health and reduced life expectancy compared to the general population. This edition of Health Matters sets out the scale of the problem and presents actions that local areas can take to reduce health inequalities, improve physical health and life chances  of people living with mental illness. Although the focus is on adults with more severe and enduring mental illness, many of the actions will be of benefit to all people experiencing mental illness.
