Mental Health Services in Australia (MHSIA) online – AIHW

“This website has been developed by the Mental Health and Palliative Care Unit at the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW). The development of the website is in response to recognition in the Fourth National Mental Health Plan of the need to make available timely, contemporary data on the services provided to Australian mental health consumers each year.

Objectives of mental health services in Australia online
By producing an online version of mental health services in Australia, rather than a hard copy print publication, the AIHW aims to:

•establish comprehensive, timely and regular national reporting on the progress of mental health reform in Australia
•make Australian mental health services data available to all stakeholders in an interactive, graphical format
•publish Australian mental health services data progressively each year as it becomes available.
How to access mental health services data

Mental Health Services data is available in four broad subject areas (Background; Services; Resources; and Additional topics), and reported in sixteen specific topic areas as per the previous hard copy reports. A mapping of the sixteen topic areas is available via the latest release page.

Data will be progressively published each year as it becomes available. Each topic area will contain an analysis of the most recent available data, including any updates to previous years’ data, through Microsoft® Excel spreadsheets accessible via the topic areas on the right hand menu. Data spreadsheets from previous years will be available within the archived data page via the additional topics area. 

Each topic area contains background information and a brief analysis of the most recent data available. The data is also available in graphical format via an interactive data portal within each topic area. The data can be accessed by clicking on either the data portal icon or the data tables icon displayed throughout the topic areas.”
