Adrian James said: “Nobody with a mental illness should have their life expectancy shortened because their physical health is overlooked. The Royal College of Psychiatrists is pleased to sign the Charter for Equal Health, demonstrating our commitment to the action required so that people with a mental illness get the help, support and guidance they need for their physical health. As a part of Equally Well UK, we look forward to working alongside the other organisations to tackle this disgraceful situation.”
