This publication contains the official statistics about uses of the Mental Health Act (‘the Act’) in England during 2017-18.

Under the Act, people with a mental disorder may be formally detained in hospital (or ‘sectioned’) in the interests of their own health or safety, or for the protection of other people.

They can also be treated in the community but subject to recall to hospital for assessment and/or treatment under a Community Treatment Order (CTO).

People may be detained in secure psychiatric hospitals, other NHS Trusts or at Independent Service Providers (ISPs). All organisations that detain people under The Act must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

In recent years, the number of detentions under the Act have been rising. An independent review is examining how the Act is used and will make recommendations for improving the Mental Health Act legislation.

This publication does not cover:
  • People in hospital voluntarily for mental health treatment, as they have not been detained under the Act (see the Mental Health Bulletin)
  • Uses of section 136 where the place of safety was a police station; these are published by the Home Office
  • Guardianship under the Mental Health Act (covered in a separate NHS Digital publication).
