Scope:

The Community mental health care national minimum data set (CMHC NMDS) includes data about mental health service contacts provided by specialised mental health services for patients/clients, other than those admitted to psychiatric hospitals or designated psychiatric units in acute care hospitals, and those resident in 24-hour staffed specialised residential mental health services.

The scope covers all ambulatory mental health care service units that deliver clinical care and are administered or funded by state and territory governments.

The scope of the collection includes ambulatory clinical mental health care provided by service units covering all target populations and includes general adult, child and adolescent, youth, older persons and forensic community mental health service units.

The scope excludes ambulatory equivalent same-day separations.

The scope excludes support services that are not specialised mental health care services (see Specialised mental health service) and services provided by non-government organisations.

The scope excludes 'in-reach' mental health service contacts, that is, service contacts provided to patients admitted to psychiatric hospitals or designated psychiatric units in acute care hospitals, and those resident in 24-hour staffed specialised residential mental health services.
