Abstract

People with psychosis face a life-restricting and life-shortening epidemic of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This can be predicted by the associated antecedent risk factors evident from early in psychosis, yet remain largely ignored. Greater coordination between primary care, secondary care and public health to systematically prevent and intervene earlier for these physical illnesses offers a realistic solution to reduce this health inequality.
