Mental health

In 2010-11 over 1.25 million adults accessed NHS services for severe or enduring mental health problems.

Our information helps the NHS to:

  • monitor and plan mental health services effectively
  • investigate the impact and coverage of mental health services at a local level
  • inform groups of people from clinicians to the public

"At any one time, roughly one in six of us is experiencing a mental health problem. While that is a staggering figure in itself, mental health problems are also estimated to cost the economy an eye-watering £105 billion per year."

Minister of State Paul Burstow, No health without mental health implementation framework
