Poor mental health linked to reduced life expectancy

Read HERE the Welcome Trust Report into the research undertaken by UCL (University College London) and the University of Edinburgh published today in the BMJ.

"Their results reveal that people who experienced symptoms of anxiety or depression had a lower life expectancy than those without any such symptoms. Even people with minor symptoms of mental health problems seemed to have a higher risk of death from several major causes, including cardiovascular disease."
