Abstract or description

The physical health needs of people with a diagnosis of mental illness should be a concern for all health professionals, as the life expectancy for people with a mental illness diagnosis is 15-20 years younger than those without, this is predominantly attributed to poor physical health. This paper explores the complexity surrounding this issue and offers insight into ways paramedics can consider these needs, by promoting physical well-being and avoiding diagnostic over shadowing.
