Abstract: Count Me In was an annual census of mental health inpatients that was undertaken in England and Wales from 2005 to 2010. Apart from brief, unpublished commentaries by the Welsh government, the data generated in Wales have received little attention and limited analysis. This paper presents a secondary analysis of the census data, with a focus on mental health inpatients from Black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds in Wales.Analyses focused on the number and characteristics of patients (age, gender, ethnicity, language and religion), the distribution of patients across Wales, sources of referral, detention status under the Mental Health Act 1983 on admission, and length of stay from admission to census day. The results revealed that the numbers of BME patients from different ethnic groups fluctuated over the 6 years; it was difficult to identify any distinct pattern.
