The Mental Health Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) profile is an important component of the Mental Health JSNA toolkit; which also includes the following:
The profile's purpose is to support Health and Wellbeing Boards and others interested in producing local mental health JSNAs by providing access to metrics on prevalence, risk and protective factors, and activity in and quality of support and care provision. These metrics can be used to benchmark to meaningful comparison groups. The profile contains data at a lower organisational / geographical level - GP practice and ward - to enable comparison within as well as between local areas.
The profile is a gateway to the other Mental Health profiles. More detail on specific conditions and client groups can be found in those.
It includes indicators at local authority (county, unitary and district), CCG, STP, GP and ward levels. Not all indicators are available at all levels.
Data are drawn from many sources and vary by time period, population and presentation of values. Care should be taken with interpretation. Detailed meta data and any caveats are set out in the Definitions section.
