Common Mental Health Disorders Profiles

The Common Mental Health Disorders Profiling Tool has been developed to support an intelligence driven approach to understanding and meeting need. It collates and analyses a wide range of publically available data on prevalence, risk, prevention, early intervention, assessment, treatment, outcomes and service costs. It provides commissioners, service providers, clinicians, services users and their families with the means to benchmark their area against similar populations and gain intelligence about what works.
Tool structure - data are presented under the headings Risk and Related Factors, Prevalence, Services, Quality and Outcomes, and Finance. Within this they are grouped by geography (Clinical Commissioning Group or local authority) and then ordered by topic (e.g. primary care followed by secondary care).
Tool content - data are drawn from many sources and vary by time period, population and presentation of values. Care should be taken with interpretation. Detailed meta data and any caveats are set out in the Definitions section.

Data quality - indicators are included if viewed as robust, of sufficient quality, or they offer an important element that could not be otherwise gained. Each indicator has been assessed and labelled with its quality rank.

Common Mental Health Disorder Pathway
The Common Mental Health Disorder Care Pathway is a high level summary using key indicators to help commissioners assess and benchmark how they manage this important condition. The aim is to ensure that this approach is consistent with and linked to the Commissioning for Value packs published by NHS England.
