Jonathan then became more interested in local implementation and in 2012 wrote public mental health commissioning guidance for the RCPsych/RCGP led Joint Commissioning Panel for Mental Health which he then worked with regions to implement. He further developed this work by identifying all publically available mental health intelligence and designing appropriate representation in graphs/ figures. Together with locally provided data, this provided comprehensive assessment of unmet need for treatment of mental disorder, prevention of mental disorder and promotion of mental health for any part of England to support local commissioning and strategic development. This work has provided mental health needs assessments to regions in England covering more than 7 million people. He also contributed to the development of a number of other mental health commissioning guidances which can be found at www.jcpmh.info.
