Medication and me: Understanding the pros and cons of mental health meds

Kirklees Recovery College, Kirklees Recovery & Wellbeing College, Pathways, Nettleton Rd, Mirfield, WF14 9AQ

My health and me

Many of us take prescribed medication throughout our lives to help with our mental health. This can provide the hope of regaining what we feel we have lost, but there can be negative effects too – everybody’s experience is different.

Join us as we explore the world of mental health medication, and learn about the different ways these drugs can affect us, both in helpful ways, and their potential side effects. This one-off session, delivered by the Deputy Chief Pharmacist at Fieldhead Hospital alongside a RWC Volunteer, focuses on how commonly prescribed mental health medications work, how we can get the most from them, and how to work with prescribers to get answers to any queries or concerns.
