Mental illness linked to increased risk of heart disease, stroke

From Medical News Today

People with mental health disorders may be at much higher risk of heart disease or stroke than the general population. This is according to a new study recently presented at this year's Canadian Cardiovascular Congress in Vancouver, Canada.

Past studies have associated mental health disorders with increased risk of cardiovascular problems. For this latest study, the research team - led by Dr. Katie Goldie, a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto, Canada - set out to gain a better understanding of the link between mental illness and cardiovascular risk.
