Leveraging Existing Natural Experiments to Advance the Health of People with Severe Mental Illness (R24) Grant.
HHS/National Institutes of Health – People with severe mental illness (SMI) die from the same causes as those in the general population, e.g., heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke, and pulmonary disease. However, these diseases are more common in people with SMI and lead to earlier death. The modifiable health risk factors that contribute to these issues are more common and have an earlier onset in people with SMI. Iatrogenic effects of psychiatric medications, which may include weight gain and metabolic disorder, add to these health risks. Effective interventions to reduce these common modifiable health risk factors exist for the general population.
