Ministry of Health

Notes

People seen: Users of mental health and addiction services. The person does not need to be physically present to be counted for example telephone contact with a clinician. Bednight: Someone occupying a bed at midnight. A bednight is assumed to include all care provided to the client occupying the bed. Contacts: All mental health and addiction services provided in a community/outpatient setting (as opposed to an inpatient/residential setting). The majority of contacts are less than three hours in duration. Face-to-face contacts: when both a person and mental health professional are physically present at some time during an activity. Care co-ordination activities, contact with family/whanau, written correspondence, seclusion, telephone calls, text messages and social media contacts/e-therapy have been excluded from this count. Activity setting: The type of physical setting or contact channel the activity was provided in; for example, activities can be provided in a court setting. The sum of people seen in each activity setting is greater than the number of people seen in 2011/12 as many of them were seen in more than one setting.
