The number of clients, services and costs of substance abuse and mental health services for the adult population in the six largest cities in Finland in 2016-2021.
The dataset contains information on integrated substance abuse and mental health services in the six largest cities, as well as on substance abuse services and mental health services. In the case of substance abuse services and mental health services, the data is broken down into open care services, services provided home, work and day activities, housing services and institutional care. The agreed definitions for data collection can be found on their own tab in the file. Further information on the organisation of services in municipalities can be found in the report (in Finnish) compiled by the Kuusikko working group.
The Six Cities comprise the six largest cities in Finland by population. In the order of population, the Six Cities are Helsinki, Espoo, Tampere, Vantaa, Oulu and Turku. The Kuusikko working groups compare the health and social services, employment services and early childhood education services in the cities. The data on customer numbers, services, personnel and costs are mainly compiled from the municipalities’ own information systems and financial statements. Experts from the cities agree on the most uniform definitions for data collection and implement the data collection in practice.
