Non Communicable Disease (NCDs) or long-term conditions as they are often referred to in the UK, are characterised as being long in duration, resulting from a combination of genetic, physiological, environmental and behavioural factors1. The four main Non-Communicable Diseases; cardiovascular, respiratory diseases, diabetes and cancer, often occur with common mental health disorders.
