Guide for use:
The total number of mental health service contacts is reported by ambulatory mental health care service units to the Mental Health Establishments NMDS. The total should be a count of contacts at the service unit level, regardless of the registration status of the client.
Each patient or client attending a group contact should be counted individually. For example, ten consumers in a group contact equates to ten contacts.
