Mental health and wellbeing in England: Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey 2014


This link is to the latest edition of the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey

The Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey (APMS) series provides data on the prevalence of both treated and untreated psychiatric disorder in the English adult population (aged 16 and over). This survey is the fourth in a series.  The previous surveys were conducted in 1993 (16-64 year olds) and 2000 (16-74 year olds) by the Office for National Statistics, which covered England, Scotland and Wales. The 2007 Survey included people aged over 16 and covered England only.

The report includes chapters on: common mental health conditions, mental health treatment and service use, post-traumatic stress disorder, psychosis, autism, personality disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, bipolar, alcohol, drugs, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts and self-harm, and comorbidity.

All the APMS surveys have used largely consistent methods. They have been designed so that the survey samples can be combined. This is particularly useful for examination of low prevalence population groups and conditions.
