Abstract

People with serious mental illness (SMI) are more likely to have poorer health and poorer health behaviours, and therefore are at greater risk for cardiometabolic health comorbidities compared to those without SMI. Referral to a specialist cardiometabolic health care nurse may result in increased detection of poor cardiometabolic health in at-risk individuals. In this article, we present the results of the physical health measures of people with serious mental illness who have accessed a community mental health service in a regional centre and argue for the need for a multidisciplinary approach. Our data show the high prevalence of obesity, hypertension, low activity, smoking and nicotine dependence, alcohol misuse disorders, and poor diet among people with serious mental illness. The high prevalence of at-risk factors for poor cardiometabolic health in people with serious mental illness adds support for the role of a specialist cardiometabolic health care nurse in the detection and referral for multidisciplinary treatment to improve the physical health outcomes for people with serious mental illness
