There were 18,457 admissions to Irish psychiatric units and hospitals in 2013, representing a rate of 402.3 per 100,000 total population. This is an increase of 284 admissions from 2012 (18,173) and also a slight increase in the rate of admissions from 396.1 in 2012 to 402.3 in 2013. There was a decrease in the number of first admissions from, 6,130 in 2012 to 6,055 in 2013 and the rate of first admissions similarly decreased from 133.6 per 100,000 in 2012 to 132.0 in 2013. Re-admissions increased from 12,043 in 2012 to 12,402 in 2013, with the proportion of admissions that were re-admissions also increasing ever so slightly from 66% in 2012 to 67% in 2013. The re-admission rate increased from 262.5 per 100,000 in 2012 to 270.3 in 2013. Approved centres reported an additional ten persons presenting for admission in 2013 but who were referred/returned home without being admitted. The overall increase in admissions was due in large part to an increase in admissions in the independent/ private and private charitable centres.
