Notes:
For purposes of the Mental Health Minimum Dataset (MHMD) collection, a MHMDS record will be assembled for each MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL of an adult (including elderly) PATIENT who has received a continuous period of care or assessment from a HEALTH CARE PROVIDER's specialist mental health services within the REPORTING PERIOD.

SPELL DEFINITION TYPE (ASSEMBLER MHCS) identifies the method used to derive the START DATE (MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL) and the END DATE (MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL).

Recorded as:

A derived from the succession of recorded contacts e.g. FACE TO FACE CONTACT COMMUNITY CARE
D declared explicitly i.e. START DATE and END DATE of recorded MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL
DX declared explicitly i.e. START DATE and END DATE of recorded MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL but the START DATE (MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL) and the END DATE (MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL) have been adjusted to accommodate contact activity which has occurred outside of the declared or derived MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL
E derived from the collation of recorded episodes e.g. CONSULTANT EPISODE (HOSPITAL PROVIDER)
EX derived from the collation of recorded episodes e.g. CONSULTANT EPISODE (HOSPITAL PROVIDER) but the START DATE (MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL) and the END DATE (MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL) have been adjusted to accommodate contact activity which has occurred outside of the declared or derived MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL
