“One of the goals of the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health is that “by 2020/21, at least 280,000 people living with severe mental health problems should have their physical health needs met”. Our inspectors found a mixed picture.” Care Quality Commission 10 October 2017

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.

“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.
