About me

My name is Owen Bowden-Jones and I am a medical doctor, psychiatrist and researcher with over twenty years experience of helping people with psychological problems.

I trained at Imperial College London in general psychiatry and am a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

My national roles include clinical advisor to Public Health England and chair of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs. I have provided expert opinion to the United Nations and European Union on mental health and substance misuse and participated in numerous international expert groups..

Since 2015 I have been leading the NEPTUNE clinical guidance group providing national guidance and e-learning on emerging drugs of misuse.

Areas of interest

I have expertise in many areas of psychiatry and particularly work with people suffering with Depression; Anxiety disorders; Obsessive Compulsive Disorder; drug, alcohol and behavioural addictions and post-traumatic stress disorder.

I have recently written a best selling book for parents on how to talk to their children about drugs, called 'The Drug Conversation'. The book was 'highly commended' at the 2017 BMA Medical Book Awards. For more details visit
