Quotes

...Catherine Goldie of the CentreCentre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, is the lead author of the study. Goldie says that "This problem is only going to get worse because prescribing practices for some of these psychiatric medications have increased substantially since 2002 (when the information she used was collected.)"
"This population is at high risk, and it's even greater for people with multiple mental health issues" says Dr. Katie Goldie, lead author of the study and a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto
"The prevention strategies are the same for people with mental health issues. That means eating a healthy diet, being physically active, being smoke-free, managing stress and limiting alcohol consumption. Making positive health behavior changes is important to our physical health and to mental health, too."
"Or they may not even seek care because of the symptoms of their disorder. A separation between primary and mental health services can also challenge these patients' care. We need improved integration and collaboration" Goldie said
