Integrating mental and physical health care

People with severe mental disorders, such as severe depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, generally die 10-20 years earlier than the general population. Most of these premature deaths are due to physical health conditions that could be prevented with better access to quality health services. 

WHO has released evidence-based guidelines to help manage physical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes or hepatitis in adults with severe mental disorders.
