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.
