Cardiovascular Disease and Behavioral Health Disorders

Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death associated with physical illness in people with serious mental illness (SMI). Life expectancy of people with SMI is 25 years less than the general population, with the majority of deaths due to premature cardiovascular disease. As you will learn, excess death due to cardiovascular disease is caused by a number of factors including genetics, lifestyle choices, and medication side effects. This course is designed for behavioral health professionals who work with individuals with SMI. Not only will this course teach you about the reasons for increased cardiovascular death in people with SMI, but it also will help you learn how to best assess and identify cardiovascular risk factors in your clients. You will learn about typical treatment options for people with, and at risk for, cardiovascular disease, as well as how to apply a collaborative care approach so that you can help your clients improve their well-being. A blend of real-life scenarios and interactive exercises will further assist you in applying the key competencies that you will gain from this training.
