This publication provides the most timely picture available of people using NHS funded secondary mental health, learning disabilities and autism services in England. These are experimental statistics which are undergoing development and evaluation. This information will be of use to people needing access to information quickly for operational decision making and other purposes. More detailed information on the quality and completeness of these statistics is made available later in our Mental Health Bulletin: Annual Report publication series.
A correction has been made to this publication on 07 May 2020. This amendment relates to a number of statistics published here; the specific measures effected are listed in the Metadata file available in the below link. All listed measures have now been corrected. The provisional statistics have also been removed as they are now superseded by the Final data published in the following month.

MHSDS Monthly: Final April to June 2019 Mental Health Services Selected NHS England Measures was temporarily removed on 11 November 2020 while the underlying methodology is investigated. The file will be reinstated as soon as the investigation is complete. NHS Digital apologises for any inconvenience caused.
From April 2020 onwards, NHS Digital has been implementing a multiple submission window model (MSWM) for MHSDS. This allows providers to retrospectively submit data for a specific reporting period once the initial provisional and performance submission windows have closed. For a limited time, providers were given the opportunity to submit revised monthly data for all months within 2019/20 using the MSWM.
As of January 2021, NHS Digital has now released revised 'End of Year' versions of the main monthly csv files for each month between April 2019 and February 2020 which reflect these revised 2019/20 MSWM submissions that occurred after 'Final' monthly data had already been published.
Both the 'Final' and 'End of Year' versions of the main monthly csv files are available to download under 'Resources'. The key facts corresponding to both versions are also presented below.
