Abstract

This paper provides a comprehensive picture of mental health services in England, including staffing and expenditure, and the number of people in need and the number treated. Historically, this information has been split across sub-sections of the health and social services; and the readily available information often appeared to give inconsistent answers. This paper brings together and interprets the available evidence to provide a single coherent map of mental health need and services, from children to older adults and across both health and social care services, in England.
