There is more than an intuitive link between your physical and your mental health. They are very much tied together, and more importantly, their influence on each other goes both ways. This suggests 3 things:
While general hospitals frequently boast behavioral health professionals on staff or facilities and wards as part of their infrastructure, many freestanding psychiatric facilities are lagging behind in providing the equivalent quality of medical care that would accelerate patient progress and reduce relapse and recidivism.
According to Mental Disorders and Medical Comorbidity issued by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (2011), "Comorbidity is the rule rather than the exception. When mental and medical conditions co-occur, the combination is associated with elevated symptom burden, functional impairment, decreased length and quality of life, and increased costs."
