Medicines management resources

Medication plays an important part in the treatment we give to many of the children, young  people and young adults using our services. Medicines can be very effective in helping people to recover from a range of mental health disorders. A fantastic resource for basic information about medicines is the Choice and Medication website.

The website offers people information about mental health conditions and the medication treatments available to help make informed decisions about their medicines.

Conditions covered include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, alcohol-related disorders, ADHD and many more.
