Scope:Help on this term

All specialised mental health services managed or funded by State or Territory health authorities.

The statistical units are specialised mental health services. These are the specialised mental health components of the State and Territory health authorities, and of regions within states and territories; specialised mental health service organisations; service units within those organisations; and private hospital and non-government residential service units funded by specialised mental health services.

Non-government residential mental health services and specialised mental health services provided by private hospitals that receive State or Territory government funding are included as service units for this NMDS.

In addition, information on funding of non-government organisations by non-health departments for the provision of mental health services is collected through a specific data element.

Ambulatory services managed by non-government organisations are not defined as statistical units for this NMDS.

The data elements relevant to each of these types of statistical unit differ, as detailed below.

States and Territories determine the organisational units that will report as ‘regions’, ‘organisations’, and ‘service units’ for this NMDS. However, as a minimum, each hospital reported to the Public Hospital Establishments NMDS should be defined as a service unit for the purposes of this NMDS and should use the same establishment identifiers in this NMDS as are used in the National Public Hospital Establishments NMDS. In addition, as a minimum, 24 hour staffed residential services and non-24 hour staffed residential services should be defined as separate service units.
