Abstract

The aim of our study was to examine availability and utilization of mental health services in the 12 Slovenian statistical regions by using the The European Service Mapping Schedule (ESMS) methodology. 251 mental health services were mapped according to their type as presented in schema of ESMS service tree. Marked differences between regions were noticed in patterns of service provision and utilization. In contrast with the scarcity of mental health services in the Zasavska and Notranjsko-kraska region, the Central-Slovenian region offered the most diverse and abundant choice of services of all statistical regions. We lack day and structured activity services offering work or work-related activities. Out-patient and community services are mainly medium intensity non-mobile services that offer continuing care.
