This meeting is Thursday, October 3, 2013, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The Healthy Active Lives (HeAL) declaration was developed by an
international working group "iphYs," including clinicians, service users,
family members and researchers from over 11 countries. The
declaration highlights key challenges and offers solutions to address
the physical health issues in young people experiencing psychosis.
Standards and targets are recommended with the aim of improving
physical health and reducing cardiometabolic risk factors in youth
Achieving these targets will require a commitment for change,
particularly in the way we work together with young people who
experience psychosis across primary and specialist care, to empower
them to enjoy healthy active lives as an essential part of their process
