Medication in supporting recovery

Medication can play an important role in supporting recovery. 

Information is available about medicines and mental health on the Choice and Medication website. By finding out more about your medication, you can come to a decision about it that is right for you. The website has been specifically designed to help answer your questions about medicines prescribed to treat mental health conditions.

You can access the Choice and Medication website to find a range of information, including:

In addition to the 'Choice and Medication' site detailed above, information is available on the following websites:

  • HeadMeds gives young people general information about mental health medication
  • Unforgettable is a dementia website full of products to try and allow someone with dementia to continue to live independently for as long as possible
  • Bumps for information about mental health medicines in pregnancy

We offer a medicines information telephone helpline which is available for people who use our services and their carers, if they have any questions or concerns about medication and would like to discuss this with a specialist mental health pharmacist.
