Healthier, Longer Lives for People with Serious Mental Illness: An International Conference

 

Many people will celebrate their 80th, 90th, or even 100th birthday — but statistically people with serious mental illness don’t have the same chance at growing old. In fact, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), people living with serious mental illness have a life expectancy that is 10-20 years shorter than average. Fountain House has teamed up with WHO to put an end to that disparity.

Fountain House and the World Health Organization are establishing guidelines and best practices to extend and improve the quality of life for people living with mental illness to be implemented by governments and health care professionals around the world.

Fountain House, in partnership with the WHO collaborating Center for Global Mental Health at Columbia University Medical center, Grand Challenges Canada, and citiesRISE, will host an international conference, Healthier, Longer Lives for People with Serious Mental Illness on November 8-9, 2018 in New York. The conference will be technically supported by WHO.
