The Mental Health Benchmarking data collection aims to collect data on a wide range of high level services available to clients with a mental health problem. There are two levels to the return, Individual & Aggregated.
- The Individual return requires that each individual using a service is recorded and each episode within that service is recorded.
- The Aggregated return is designed so that it totals the number of clients for each service in the individual return but is also open so that additional service can be included at an aggregated level.
This allows for any new or important services within an area to be returned and allows for the easy identification of services for possible inclusion in the individual level return.
Please note: Mental Health Benchmarking data will not be collected in 2015.
