Psychiatrist 's  Response

Please be reassured that people don't die just because of their mental illnesses directly.....but it is accepted fact that mental illness increases both mortality and morbidity IF UNTREATED.

Please do go back to your psychiatrist as he/she is best placed to help you.

Good Luck
