The Overlap of Mental Illness and Respiratory Disease: A Primer

People with severe mental illness (SMI) have a higher prevalence of respiratory diseases than the general population and often have worse health outcomes due to their respiratory disease. Many factors contribute to worsened physical and mental health outcomes in individuals with co-morbid SMI and respiratory disease, including genetics, lifestyle choices, poor access to and quality of care, and cognitive impairment. Additionally, self-management and behavioral change, often difficult in people with SMI, are integral components of caring for respiratory disease. This course is designed for behavioral health professionals who work with individuals with SMI. You will learn why you have a unique opportunity to assist your clients in managing their respiratory disease and how you can improve your clients’ overall health and quality of life. Through real-life scenarios and interactive exercises, you will learn about typical treatment plans for respiratory diseases and how to screen and assess your clients for respiratory issues. Using a collaborative care approach, you will develop strategies to empower your clients to achieve better control of their respiratory symptoms.
