Do you, a family member or someone you care for suffer from mental health issues?

All your mental health worries and questions are addressed as it has every mental health related resource available 24/7 at your fingertips.

New Resource Added – Very Easy Read Leaflets (VERAs)

Posted on 26th April 2017 by Lisa Yates

I’m glad to report that all Choice and Medication Website subscribers in UK and RoI now have access to 160 VERAs (Very Easy-ReAd leaflets) to use as a resource aid in discussions with people who have learning disabilities and other groups with similar problems.

The VERAs cover all the main medicines in mental health (including a wide range of anticonvulsants too) and have been designed in collaboration with Danielle Adams from Herts Parts (see the CPPE LD book page ix). They meet the legally required Accessible Information Standards, and about time too because the alternatives have been somewhat flawed and out-of-date.

Any comments, feedback and suggestions you may have would be most welcome! Please contact Lisa via: lisa.yates@choiceandmedication.org.uk

PS: NZ and Australian VERAs are also in preparation so will follow shortly!

The 8th Annual International CMHP Psychiatric Pharmacy Conference

Posted on 26th April 2017 by Lisa Yates

Friday 13th October to Sunday 15th October 2017 at The Midland, Manchester

As always Mistura Enterprise Limited will be sending the entire Choice and Medication team to attend the CMHP event with the usual entertainment, fun and conference related frolics all packed neatly in to the exhibition stand. This means that all you Choice and Medication subscribers shall have to come and visit the team in person on the exhibition stand to see what surprises we will have in store for you this year…

Will it be an Dawnflatable pirate themed party on a boat (similar to normal toy inflatables but with way more pzazz) like we had in 2016?

Will it be a Dawneoke singing competition (similar to normal karaoke but with a terrible singing voice) like we had in 2015?

Will it be a Dawnydanceathon (similar to normal dancing but with really bad footwork) like we had in 2014?

Or will it be something completely different instead! You will have to wait and see…

For more information and details on the 8th Annual International CMHP Conference visit the CMHP home page or the conference page here.
