Welcome to the Mental and Behavioural Health Clinical Reference Group Space 

The Mental and Behavioural Health Clinical Reference Group has been established to bring together clinicians across the world to discuss the use of SNOMED CT in their clinical records and work together to draw up a draft plan for revision and identification of new content in SNOMED CT, based on international requirements and review of existing content. Any such plan can then be shared with SNOMED International to discuss resourcing and timelines for any agreed work.

This confluence site provides a mechanism for capturing and sharing information, arranging calls and recording details of what has been discussed internationally. Those with an interest in this topic are encouraged to contribute, regardless of professional background and level of knowledge.

The Mental and Behavioural Health  Group has a dedicated Zoom account

The link provides a Zoom discussion forum, which doesn't require a chair/lead person, but provides access to a discussion space. All the functionality is still available, video, scene share. The only limitation is that currently it is not possible to record the calls. If this is required, please contact a member of the SNOMED International staff.


We welcome participation from anyone interested in ensuring that SNOMED CT supports the clinical requirements for electronic documentation and communication of patient care in any setting, focused on mental and behavioural health.
