Mirjam, February 2014

Sarah, February 2016
“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.”
Kate, February 2017
“You should know that what you do makes a difference and really helps people.”
Stewart, August 2018
“Usually material for patients/general public is patronising and dumbed-down to the point where I resort to material for professionals – this site is a refreshing change. Also appreciated the info about where the information comes from and how you are funded. Thank you for all your hard work with this site – it is fantastic.”
Kate, February 2017
“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
“You know your website and information on medication is really good.”
