Statistical information on mental health among the UK Armed Forces.

Abstract

This annual report provides statistical information on mental health in the UK Armed Forces for the period 1 April 2007 to 31 March 2015. It summarises all initial assessments for a new episode of care of Service personnel at MOD Specialist Mental Health Services (Departments of Community Mental Health (DCMH) for outpatient care, and all admissions to the MOD’s in-patient care contractor) by financial year. This is the first report in this annual series to provide figures for the number of UK Armed Forces personnel assessed at a MOD DCMH and/or to be admitted to one of the MOD’s in-patient care providers in addition to the number of new episodes of care. This report presents eight-year trend information on demographic groups at risk and comparisons to mental health in the UK population.
