Abstract

Our study is designed to fill a knowledge gap on mortality and morbidity in people with a psychotic disorder. It will: 1. Estimate rates of 7-year mortality and morbidity in people with a psychotic disorder. 2. Examine the impact of sets of risk factors on mortality and morbidity. 3. Develop predictive risk equations for CVD for use with people with psychotic disorders. 4. Calculate the economic burden of severe and acute physical morbidity in addition to mental health impacts.?
