Co-morbidity: why one mental illness can lead to more

About one in five Australians experience a mental illness in any given year. But what about when mental health issues occur ... together?

On All in the Mind this week, we look at a massive Scandinavian epidemiological study series which considers why having one mental illness puts you at greater risk of developing subsequent ones, and explore what that might mean for the treatment and prevention of mental health issues.
