According to official returns there was a total of 20,079 persons suffering from mental illness under care on 31st December, 1950. These patients were on the registers of District and Auxiliary Mental Hospitals and Private, Private Charitable and Authorised Institutions; in Public Assistance institutions; in Court care in unregistered houses, and detained in the Central Criminal Lunatic Asylum, Dundrum. The following table shows the numbers of patients in each type of establishment on 31st December, 1950, as compared with those within official cognisance on 31st December, 1949. The total number recorded on 31st December, 1950, showed a net increase of 155 over the figure at the end of the previous year. The distribution of this net increase among the different types of establishment is shown in the following table. The number of male patients under care increased by 47 and the number of female patients by 108. It may be seen from the table that the largest number of patients representing 93 per cent of the whole were under care in District and Auxiliary Mental Hospitals, which institutions are maintained by District Mental Hospital Authorities.
