A model for mental health needs and resourcing in small geographic areas : a multivariate spatial perspective

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper considers how small area variations in a set of psychiatric referral outcomes in a London health authority of 750 000 people may inform health need assessment and health resourcing for mental illness based on true need. As well as adopting a multivariate perspective, the spatial interdependence of the outcomes is included in the modelling approach outlined. The analysis relates to three hospital referral outcomes for psychiatric conditions, and to total community mental health referrals across sixty-seven electoral wards in East London
