The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health recommended that NHS England should ensure that by 2020/21, 280,000 more people having their physical health needs met by increasing early detection and expanding access to evidence-based physical care assessment and intervention.

“Around 40% of people with depression and anxiety disorders also have an LTC. Around 30% of people with an LTC and 70% with MUS also have mental health comorbidities. Currently, mental and physical health care are provided by separate services that are rarely coordinated. This is inconvenient for the person, costly to the NHS and likely to produce sub-optimal outcomes.” The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Pathway for People with Long-term Physical Health Conditions and Medically Unexplained Symptoms 21st March 2018

“A large proportion of people with mental health problems have physical health problems and many die much too young as a result.” Prof Tim Kendall, National Clinical Director for Mental Health, NHS England

“Although the health of the general population in the UK has improved significantly over the past 50 years, the life expectancy of adults with severe mental illness (SMI) in 2016 is lagging behind. Nearly half (46%) of people with SMI have a long-term physical health condition and are at risk of losing on average 10-20 years of their lifespan due to physical ill-health.” ‘Improving the physical health of adults with severe mental illness: essential actions’“Physical illness is the biggest single cause of death in severe mental illness. This is now a major priority for us, NHS England and anyone who cares about severe mental illness.” Professor Sir Simon Wessely, President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists

This conference takes a practical case study based approach to assessing, monitoring and improving the physical health outcomes of people with mental health conditions. There is a focus on early intervention, and through learning from organisations that have succeeded in addressing the challenge of improving the physical health of people with mental health conditions.
