Challenges of managing type 2 diabetes in people with severe mental illness: the service user and healthcare professional perspectives

1.00pm

Seminars

Public

This seminar is jointly presented by the Centre for Mental Health Research and the Joint Institute of Mental Health Nursing.

Location: MG26, Myddelton Street Building.

Presenters: Dr Kathleen Mulligan, Dr Hayley McBain and Frédérique Lamontagne-Godwin, City University London.

People with severe mental illness (SMI) have an almost two-fold risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared with the general population. This increased risk has been attributed to the effects of anti-psychotic medications, pathophysiology of SMI and lifestyle factors such as poor diet, obesity and physical inactivity.

This seminar will present the findings of qualitative interviews with service users and healthcare professionals regarding the challenges of managing diabetes alongside a severe mental illness.

Lunch available from 12:45pm
