Family Support from the Bristol & District Tranquilliser Project

Bristol & District Tranquilliser Project’s information on family support.  From their website: “People coming off prescribed psychotropic medication need the support of their family and friends but we understand that sometimes to do that you yourself will need support. The initial concern you may have will probably be to make sure your family member or friend coming off these medications is getting the support they need. You may not see yourself as someone with your own needs. But supporting a family member or friend coming off these types of medication can be demanding, stressful, upsetting and frustrating.  You will need to help them get through the withdrawal and recovery period. There may be some difficult times during this process. It can be an emotional time. Information about types of medication and withdrawal from medication is available for you on this website which you can download.”  Access the complete article here.
