Government publishes mental health statistics
2nd November 2012

The Department of Health has released figures relating to the treatment of mental health.

Quarterly Mental Health Community Teams Activity data for the second quarter of the year were published by the government department, as well as revisions for the first quarters of both 2011-12 and 2012-13.

It was revealed by the government that Early Intervention teams served 5,137 new cases of psychosis in the first half of 2012-13, while 97.2 per cent of patients under adult mental illness specialties on Care Programme Approach were followed up within seven days of being discharged from psychiatric inpatient care.

The department added that it welcomes feedback on the content and presentation of Mental Health Community Teams Activity statistics.

A Health Special Administration consultation published earlier this week by the Department of Health revealed new safeguards across the health service in a bid to provide a greater level of protection for patients.
