The Commission engaged the School of Psychiatry at the University of NSW and the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District’s Keeping the Body in Mind team to produce a Physical Health and Mental Wellbeing evidence guide. The resource provides a summary of the evidence regarding what measures need to be taken to improve the physical health of people living with severe mental illness, including outlining what we can most confidently say about the links between physical health and mental illness and its treatments, and what we can do better. It draws on the most robust research and includes examples of successful approaches from NSW, Australia and overseas.
