Severe Mental Illness Profiles

The Severe Mental Illness 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.

Psychosis Care Pathway
The Psychosis Care Pathway provides a high level summary using 16 key indicators to help users assess and benchmark how they manage this important condition. This pathway is consistent with and linked to the Commissioning for Value Psychosis packs to be published by NHS England.
