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.

Depression is one of the leading causes of illness and disability among adolescents. When adolescent mental health conditions are not addressed, they extend into adulthood, impairing both physical and mental health and limiting opportunities to lead fulfilling lives. Mental health promotion and prevention are key to helping adolescents thrive.
