Aim. Analyzing the indices that allow to improve population health by, for example, improving the quality of healthcare services and increasing accessibility to these services is among the priorities of the World Health Organization (WHO). This is of particular importance in Poland, as the psychiatric care reform is being carried out in accordance with the National Mental Healthcare Program guidelines. The aim of the study is to analyze mental health services provided to adults and reported to the National Health Fund in 2010–2014.
Methods. In the present study, we expanded the information included in the second part of the maps of health needs. In addition to the evaluation of services provided to adults in 2014, we presented an analysis of services in 2010–2014. According to these data, there was a continuous increase both in the number of individuals provided with services for psychiatric  disorders and in the total number of provided services. There was an increase in the number of patients treated for mood disorders, neurotic disorders, stress-related and somatic disorders, as well as addictions.
Results. The increase in the total number of services was mainly seen for outpatient types of care. The reasons why in 2014 there was a resurgence in psychiatric hospitalizations and in the hospitalization rate per 100 thousand adults remains unclear.
Conclusions. Our results indicate the need for further support of the development of psychiatric care using multidirectional efforts within an integrated model for solving health problems. An overall analysis of services provided in psychiatric care requires access to information on services funded from non-public sources and expanding the reported information.
