Heartland Family Service InSHAPE® is an innovative, evidence-based wellness service developed at Dartmouth College for adults experiencing Serious and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI).
The goal of the services are to improve physical health and quality of life, reduce the risk of preventable diseases, and enhance the life expectancy of individuals living with SPMI.
Studies show that individuals living with SPMI have a lifespan that is 20-25 years shorter than the general population. These individuals are also at an increased risk of chronic diseases, including diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and nicotine dependence.
