“Just a fan letter, a local psychiatrist gave us the name of your site and we have found it extremely useful and informative this week in connection with new medication for a family member – and also I really like the approachable/informal tone of the narrative entries and answers to questions.”

“I just used the updated C&M leaflet on antidepressants in pregnancy for the first time and it is tremendously helpful! Here in Ireland we have less access to NHS resources such as UKMi and Bumps so this is a fantastic resource for healthcare professionals and patients. Thank you!”
Ciara, July 2018
“Thank you for your very helpful website, especially the fact sheet / decision making guide to coming off medication.”

Kate, February 2017
