In 2011, the Mental Health Network (MHN) published a factsheet on key statistics and trends in mental health. We have updated the factsheet, reflecting new figures, statistics and resources, giving an overview of the major trends

This factsheet sets out available data relating to:

  • investment in services

  • suicide and homicide rates

  • use of mental health legislation
  • mental health of children and young people
  • service user experience
