• Number of total new entries/cases per month, by age group (five year bands), 2015 – 2020 calendar year

• Number of distinct exits per month, by age group (five year bands if possible*), 2015 – 2020 calendar year
• Number of total new exits per month, by age group (five year bands), 2015 – 2020 calendar year

For the DHB:
• Number of hospitalisations for mental health per year, by age group (five year bands), 2015 – 2020 calendar year
• Number of people waitlisted to see a psychologist per year, by age group (five year bands), 2015 – 2020 calendar year

*Five year bands are ideally 0 – 5, 6 – 10, 11 -15, 16- 20, 21 – 25, 26 -30, etc. If there is too much suppression in those age bands can it please be in ten year age bands.

Hello Elodie

There are a few areas of your request we are seeking to clarify.

Firstly, in relation to data on MH crisis response - our crisis component is embedded in our community teams; we will endeavour to extract the information if possible but may have to provide Community Mental Health data, noting that a certain of portion of this will be related to crisis response.

In addition, Waitemata DHB is the regional provider of some specialist mental health and addictions services. We are wanting to clarify that you are happy for us to exclude the following areas:

- Addiction services - Community Alcohol and Drug Services (CADS)
- Forensic mental health (Mason Clinic)
- Mental Health Services for Older Adults - both community and inpatient services.

This means that we will be providing information for the following areas:

- community mental health
- child & adolescent mental health
- adult mental health inpatient services.

Please advise if you are happy for us to take this approach with your request. It should be noted that your request will be on hold until we receive your clarification.

Please contact me about this or any other aspect of your request.

Kind regards,
