This presentation will review recent studies published as part of the Niels Bohr Professorship, based at Aarhus University. The studies explore comorbidity between (a) pairs of different types of mental disorders (based on Danish registers and international surveys), and (b) mental disorders and subsequent general medical conditions. In addition, we examined the link between sets of mental disorders and mortality. Details of the paper and data visualization sites can be found on
