Choice & Medication: A Useful Resource

Navigating the often complex road to recovery that takes in medication choices along the way is not a simple task.  There is much to consider, not least overall efficacy and the potential for side-effects.

The Health and Social Care Board in Northern Ireland has recently launched a very useful website – ‘Choice and medication: information for people who use services, carers and professionals.’ 

The HSCNI site contains easily accessible information on mental health conditions (including bipolar disorder), treatments and medication options.  There are also a selection of downloadable leaflets, catering to a range of audiences and circumstances.  For example, there is a very useful guide on how to get the best from your GP.  

Although the website is produced for a Northern Ireland audience, it has a wider application across the UK and further afield.  

You can visit the website here: www.choiceandmedication.org/hscni.
