Mental Health Workstream

The focus of the LPP Mental Health work stream is to support the delivery of the top 10 priority areas identified by the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer.

Priority areas identified are improving physical health in patients with mental health, as evidence suggests that people with severe mental health conditions have an average reduced life expectancy of between 16 and 25 years. 

Other priority areas are around safety in managing high risk drugs like clozapine across the interface and managing patients on high dose of antipsychotics, improving access, delirium to minimise risk of misdiagnosis and access appropriate care and integrated care across the interface.
