What the reports can't tell you
How many people were in contact with secondary mental health services or subject to the Mental Health Act, as the MHSDS data are known to be incomplete.
Whether variations by provider or CCG area are due to variations in levels of mental illness, service provision or due to data quality limitations.
Whether changes over time are due to changes in levels of mental illness, service provision or the completeness of the MHSDS data. Any spikes or step changes may be the result of MHSDS data quality issues.
