North Metro SHIP is an extension of the national SHIP survey, in WA North Metropolitan Health Services Mental Health. Its aims were to:
- Estimate the local prevalence of psychosis in North Metropolitan Area Health Service;
- Describe the social and economic circumstances of people living with psychosis within North Metropolitan Area Health Service, their mental and physical health profiles, and their use of services; and
- Develop a local evidence base to help inform mental health policy development in North Metropolitan Health Service and to enable service providers to develop services to meet specific local needs to the benefit of people living with psychosis, their family, friends, carers and the services supporting them.
A cost analysis using the data collection was also completed.
