Home Office does not hold the data in the format requested.

We are working with partners in Kent NHS to improve access to mental health professionals. Home Office staff on site are trained to identify and deal with vulnerable people and in the event of a mental health crisis we work closely with existing health providers to ensure appropriate onward referral.
