The lifespan of many people living with serious mental illness is shortened decades due to preventable causes. Limited access to primary care, lifestyle factors (smoking, poor nutrition, sedentary habits) and stigma are contributors to premature morbidity and mortality.
People with chronic health conditions have worse health outcomes when comorbid behavioral health conditions are not addressed.

- Better health outcomes
