Interactive data

The overnight admitted mental health-related care interactive figures provide data on hospital activity and separations, state and territory  breakdowns, demographic information and principal diagnoses. These figures allow users to explore the data in more detail.

Interactive ON: Nine interactive figures showing data related to overnight admitted mental health-related hospital care to 2018–19. Figure 1 is a stacked vertical bar chart showing mental health and non-mental health-related admitted hospital care activity by patient days, procedures, separations and separation rate (per 10,000 population), in public or private hospitals, from 2006–07 to 2018–19. There were almost 2,700,000 mental health-related patient care days in public hospitals in 2018–19. Figure 2 is a series of line graphs showing the proportion (per cent) of mental health-related patient days, procedures, and separations, in public and private hospitals, from 2006–07 to 2018–19. From 2014–15 to 2016–17, public hospitals had a large increase in the proportion of patient days which were mental health-related, from 16.2% to 20.3%. Figure 3 is a line chart comparing the average length of stay for mental health and non-mental health-related separations, in public and private hospitals, from 2006–07 to 2018–19. The average length of stay for mental health-related separations in all hospitals has reduced from 16.1 days in 2006–07 to 13.8 days in 2018–19, but is higher than non-mental health-related separations (4.8 days in 2018–19). Figure 4 is a series of bar graphs displaying patient days, procedures, psychiatric care days or separations, in public and private hospitals, with and without specialised psychiatric care, from 2006–07 to 2018–19. The number of separations in all hospitals with specialised psychiatric care (from 111,875 in 2006–07 to 171,286 in 2018–19) had a larger increase than those without (from 71,487 in 2006–07 to 99,754 in 2018–19). Figure 5 is a stacked area chart showing the number or rate (per 10,000 population) of separations by age group and sex, with or without specialised psychiatric care, from 2006–07 to 2018–19. Females receive specialised psychiatric care at a higher rate than males, with females aged 12–17 years increasing from 37.3 in 2006–07 to 78.2 in 2018–19. Figure 6 is a series of line graphs comparing the rate (per 10,000 population) of separations with or without specialised psychiatric care, by age group and sex, from 2006–07 to 2018–19. Males aged 85 years and over had the highest rate and largest increase of any age group without specialised psychiatric care, from 176.7 in 2006–07 to 316.4 in 2018–19. Figure 7 is an animated line chart comparing the rate (per 10,000 population) of separations, with or without psychiatric care, by age group and sex each year from 2006–07 to 2018–19. The rate of specialised psychiatric care for females in 2018–19 was highest for those aged 18–24 years (117.3) and 35–44 years for males (113.1). Figure 8 is two line graphs comparing the rate (per 10,000 population) of separations, with and without specialised psychiatric care, by sex and age group, from 2006–07 to 2018–19. In 2018–19, Females aged 18–24 years had a higher rate (117.3) of specialised psychiatric care than males (90.7) with the difference between them widening from 2010–11. Figure 9 is three stacked bar charts comparing various measures of activity, in public and private hospitals with and without specialised psychiatric care, for each jurisdictions in 2018–19. Queensland had the highest average length of stay with specialised psychiatric care in public hospitals (217.8 days) and the Northern Territory had the lowest (12.6 days).
