Physical Health Concerns of people diagnosed with metal illness

Brenda Happell, Stephanie B. Ewart

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

In most cases preventable illnesses such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes are to blame. If we as nurses are to aspire to holistic and non-discriminatory healthcare, this situation simply cannot be tolerated. Another common assumption is people with mental illness are not motivated to improve their physical health, it is simply not a priority for them. This is an interesting assumption given most of the research has been conducted by, and from the perspective of, health professionals. Synergy, Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre at the University of Canberra and ACT Health, is strongly committed to consumer involvement in all aspects of the research process.
