Persons with serious mental illness are at risk of dying 25 years younger than the general population!
To address this alarming statistic, we need to learn more about the causes of premature death, monitor the health status of those we serve, and increase collaborations with general healthcare. National Council member organizations understand the enormity of the problem and are leading the way in developing solutions. And the National Council is committed to assisting you with developing effective behavioral health-primary care collaborative models, with addressing the health needs of individuals with serious mental illnesses, and with identifying needed resources.
