Mental Health Inpatient Snapshot Survey

About the survey

Getting the balance of inpatient and community-based accommodation and mental health support services right is critical to providing an effective and efficient mental health support system in Western Australia.

The Mental Health Inpatient Snapshot Survey (MHISS) provides a critical source of evidence for decision-making in relation to the provision of community-based accommodation and mental health support services for people living with mental health and alcohol and/or other drug issues.

The MHISS is coordinated by the Mental Health Commission with support from Health Service Providers. The survey is designed to capture:

  • the proportion of mental health inpatients who could be discharged from hospital, if suitable community-based accommodation and mental health support services were available; and
  • the types of community-based accommodation and mental health support services required to support hospital discharge for these inpatients.

Reports

The MHISS 2019 was conducted in early April 2019 and included publicly-funded mental health inpatient facilities in Western Australia.
