Abstract

Objectives Low levels of physical activity and poor dietary habits are common in people with serious mental illness and contribute to the poorer overall health and early mortality observed in this population. This paper examines the relationships between health behaviour knowledge and self-reported health behaviours in people with serious mental illness.
