Research shows that the death rate for people with mental disorders is, on average, 2.22 times higher than that of people in the general population, and those with a serious mental illness, typically defined as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and major depression, have a 10-25 year life expectancy reduction. The majority of these untimely deaths are blamed on natural causes, such as acute or chronic illnesses (heart diseases, pulmonary diseases, infectious diseases) and is due, in part, to life style choices. You can read more about the supportive research here. Below you will find helpful plans to address common issues associated with life expectancy reduction.
