Declaration of interest
I am a sessional consultant psychiatrist with the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA), the independent health and social care regulatory body for Northern Ireland. Although RQIA has an interest in the subject matter of this editorial the views contained within are mine and do not necessarily reflect those of RQIA.
Those with mental illness die prematurely. One reason may be that psychiatrists are overly concerned with risk, focusing too much on this aspect of practice and neglecting the physical health needs of our patients. We need to reconsider how we approach our patients and their needs.
