A new Government Report published on the 27th  September 2018 confirms that:

People with SMI are at a greater risk of poor physical health and have a higher premature mortality than the general population. People with SMI in England:

  • die on average 15 to 20 years earlier than the general population
  • have 3.7 times higher death rate for ages under 75 than the general population
  • experience a widening gap in death rates over time

It is estimated that for people with SMI 2 in 3 deaths are from physical illnesses that can be prevented. Major causes of death in people with SMI include chronic physical medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, diabetes and hypertension.

Compared to the general population, people under 75 years of age in contact with mental health services in England have death rates that are :

  • 5 times higher for liver disease
  • 4.7 times higher for respiratory disease
  • 3.3 times higher for cardiovascular disease
  • 2 times higher for cancer
