YoungMinds- Jo Brand recommends HeadMeds

March 31, 2014

Jo Brand guest blogs on the YoungMinds website in support of the charity’s new website providing information on psychiatric medications to young people.

HeadMeds

 is a website designed especially for young people about mental health medication, just like the Frank website about drugs, it will provide young people with accessible and useful information about mental health medication during a time which is  often confusing , frightening and isolating for them.

I know that having to take medication, because it’s something they are not used to, can be a strange experience for many young people. I used to be a mental health nurse and I saw quite a few young people feeling bewildered when having to take on the wholly unfamiliar experience of taking medication and the side effects they sometimes experienced.
