Answer

To best answer your question we have searched our call records to identify those incidents that mention or factor mental health.

We have an Initial service code which is recorded if the call handler believes the incident to be regarding mental health.

In addition we have a qualifier that is recorded concerning calls involving Mental Health, irrespective of the service code.

Please see the number of calls below.
