Two updates to the methodology used to produce MHS95 (Number of Children and Young People aged under 18 supported through NHS funded mental health with at least one contact (12 month rolling)) have been made.
The first affects the 'CCG; Provider' breakdown and rectifies an issue which meant that not all relevant 'CCG; Provider' activity was being counted in the data originally released.
The second is a refinement to better record the activity undertaken in anonymous providers such as Kooth plc (previously known as XenZone Ltd).
Revised data for March, April and May 2021 using the new methodology is now available within v2 of the MHSDS Monthly Children and Young People and Perinatal CSV files. Data for June 2021 onwards uses the new methodology.
A revised version of the Provisional May 2021 Children and Young People and Perinatal data originally released has not been released as part of this April 2021 publication as it is now superseded by data published as part of the May 2021 publication.
