As part of a wider project on mental health in OECD countries, a series of descriptive profiles have been prepared for England, Sweden, Scotland, Netherlands, Finland and Italy intended to provide descriptive, easily comprehensible, highly informative accounts of the mental health systems.

These profiles, entitled ‘Mental Health Analysis Profiles’ (MHAPs), will be able to inform discussion and reflection and provide an introduction to and a synthesised account of mental health in a given country. Each MHAP follows the same template, and whilst the MHAPs are stand-alone profiles, loose cross-country comparison using the MHAPs is possible and encouraged.
