This information is not available in the format requested. Data are collected by the Department from the programme budgeting data collection from 2003-04 onwards. Prior to this, data was collected through the national health service Health and Community Health Services collection (HCHS). The two data collections are not compatible, and the HCHS data set underestimates total expenditure, so has not been used.

Data on mental health budgets from 2003-04 to 2007-08 only are available from the NHS programme budget data collections for mental health disorders and this is shown in the table.
