Summary When a person with a co-morbid mental illness requires palliative care, a balance in expert mental health and palliative care is critical to a dignified ending. The patient with a co-morbid mental illness requiring end-of-life care in Australia is currently under-recognized, and urgent consideration of the specific needs of this often discriminated against and stigmatized population is essential to provide appropriate care. This discussion paper explores the issues that arise when palliative care is necessary for a person living and dying with a mental illness, in the context of the Australian health care system and end-of-life care. A case for collaborative interprofessional clinical partnerships exists between the patient, family carers, and palliative care and specialist mental health clinicians, so that optimal care can be facilitated for the person living with a chronic or severe mental illness at the end of life.
