The prevalence of physical illness among psychiatric patients is high. The people with a mental problem die approximately 20 years younger due to their physical illness (Koranyi & Potoczny 1992), and their physical complaints are often untreated (De Hert et al. 2011). Numerous studies on this subject have been conducted, mostly in the develop countries. Mental health research in Indonesia is rare, and the burden of physical illness among psychiatric inpatients in the country remains unknown.
