Mental health tool launched

National mental health statistics that shed new light on care and treatment for patients are now available via NHS Digital’s interactive data hub. 

Launched on World Mental Health Day (10 October), the online hub gives healthcare workers, patients, carers, charities and researchers the ability to find the most relevant mental health information for their needs, with the aim of improving patient care.

This includes information on the number of people in contact with mental health services, the proportion of mental health, learning disability and autism service users admitted as inpatients and estimates for the number of staff in the mental health and learning disability workforce. 

Ramesh Notra, principal information analyst in community and mental health at NHS Digital, said: “The Mental Health Data Hub is a key tool to enable people to access our mental health statistics more easily and in an interactive way.”
