Common medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes mellitus and cancer disproportionately affect adults with serious mental illness (e.g., schizophrenia, bipolar disorder) and account for a significant portion of the elevated mortality rates observed in this population. In this lecture, Dr. Leopoldo J. Cabassa, MSW, PhD (bio) will discuss his recently published book “Addressing Health Inequities in People with Serious Mental Illness: A Call to Action”, in which he examines the factors that contribute to these health inequities and ways to solve them. Dr. Cabassa is a Professor, Director of the Social Work PhD Program, and Co-Director of the Center for Mental Health Services Research at the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis.
