Healthy Communities: Hospitalisations for mental health conditions and intentional self-harm in 2013–14
Released 22 September 2016
Awareness of mental health has grown across Australia over the past few years, yet there is still a need for more detailed information at the local level to support efforts to improve health services. This report looks at variation in mental health-related hospital admissions across Australia’s 31 Primary Health Network areas and more than 300 smaller local areas (SA3s), both overall and for six groups of mental health conditions, as well as for intentional self-harm. Detailed results at the local level are also available via Excel downloads.
