This publication provides the most detailed picture available of people who used NHS funded secondary mental health, learning disabilities and autism services in England during the financial year 2017-18.
All the analysis included in this publication can be found in the reference data tables, and in the associated machine-readable data file. Information you need to know about the quality of these statistics and how they can be interpreted can be found in the main report. An interactive report is also available allowing you to explore some statistics in further detail.
Demographic analysis (age, gender, ethnicity and Index of Multiple Deprivation) is presented for 2017-18. Please consult previous editions of this publication series for demographic analysis for previous years. All annual and monthly publications relating to uses of mental health, learning disabilities and autism services can be found in the related links below.
Please Note: There are methodological differences between the derivation of CCGs (and subsequently STPs and Regions) within the Mental Health Bulletin publication and the Mental Health Services Monthly Statistics publication. Where there are data quality issues, records are more likely to be mapped to an unknown CCG in the Mental Health Bulletin. NHS Digital is reviewing the methodology for deriving CCGs across all its Mental Health publications and will communicate future methodology changes and implications to users.
