Stolen Years

Programme Leads: Dr Ofra Koffman

There are more people in London living with a severe mental illness than in other parts of the UK. These Londoners live around 10 to 20 years less than others and have more physical health conditions and risk factors. While these physical health conditions are mostly preventable and treatable, they are less likely to be diagnosed and treated. And when people with severe mental ill health do receive a diagnosis and treatment, their outcomes are usually worse.
