This MQ Fellows Award will have the theme “Gone too Soon”. People affected by mental illness and mental distress die too soon; their lives are scandalously short. Suicide is one contributing factor. However, a major reason is the close link between physical and mental health causing people with severe mental illness to die of preventable physical causes. Young adults with severe mental illness are five times more likely to have three or more physical health conditions than their peers.
Projects should be focused on the premature death among people suffering from mental illness and mental distress; primarily due to suicide or comorbidities and charter pathways to genuine impact via, for example, understanding mechanisms or developing effective and scalable solutions.
