Common mental health disorders

The Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey (APMS 2007) provided estimates of the prevalence of common mental health conditions by age and gender. Common mental health conditions include mood and anxiety disorders (e.g. generalised anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder), and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).

The table below presents estimates of the number of people in Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG who have a common mental health problem. These are presented by age and gender. These figures have been calculated by applying the prevalence estimates from the APMS 2007 to the 2014 CCG population estimates devised by the ONS.

Note. as some people may have more than one mental health problem (comorbidity) the total does not equal the sum of all specific mental health problems. These estimates reflect the adult (16+) population, and do not include estimates of childhood mental health conditions.

Note: Prevalence estimates by age and gender from the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey (2007) were applied to the CCG population (ONS Mid-Year Estimates 2014 (built up from LSOAs)) to produce these values. Figures are rounded to the nearest 10 so may not sum. As some people may have more than one problem the "any CMD" does not equate to the total of all specific problems.
