Many mental health practitioners do not feel confident in assessing the physical health needs of people with a Serious Mental Illness, as there is a lack of existing training in this subject. Even when training is offered, it is difficult for staff to access it due to clinical workload commitments. The Regional health Improvement Profile (RHIP) has been created to assist healthcare practitioners in taking on this role effectively.
The RHIP is an evidence-derived physical health check tool specifically designed to address all the physical health problems that are more common in people with SMI. It supports healthcare practitioners in identifying these physical health problems and guides them towards evidence-based interventions to address the issue.
