SURVEY – CEP needs your contribution for BMA review into prescribed drugs
By admin on 02/04/2014 in News

The Council for Evidence-based Psychiatry (cepuk.org) has been invited to contribute evidence to a project at the BMA (British Medical Association) which will review the issues associated with dependence upon prescribed drugs, including benzodiazepines, sleeping pills, pain relievers and antidepressants.

If you or a family member has experienced negative effects with one or more of these drugs, or has had difficulties withdrawing or following withdrawal, then you are invited to submit your experiences to CEP. We will then collate these and include a summary and/or individual responses in our submission to the BMA.

You may submit anonymously; if you do supply your name we will not use it as part of our contribution to the BMA. However please supply your country of residence and email in case we want to get in touch with you. We cannot guarantee to include all of the submissions made to us.

Note that you do not have to reside in the UK in order to contribute.

We would also like to be able to use your responses anonymously in other areas of CEP’s work and research; please let us know if you are happy for us to do this.

This is an important opportunity to contribute to a prestigious review of the problems associated with these drugs and we are very grateful for your input.

The survey is online and can be accessed at the following link:

We desperately need to seed the medical establishment with the indisputable facts about what have happened to us as a result of taking psychiatric drugs. Please help The Council for Evidence-based Psychiatry with this data collection.
 

I received an email with the below information today.

 has been invited to contribute evidence to a project at the BMA (British Medical Association) which will review the issues associated with dependence upon prescribed drugs, including benzodiazepines, sleeping pills, pain relievers and antidepressants.

 
 
The BMA has allowed us to solicit individual contributions as part of this evidence, to include submissions from abroad.  We have therefore set up an online survey to gather this.

 
 

I’d therefore be very grateful if you could promote this survey to your communities and service users, and otherwise tweet and/or post on Facebook.  The direct link to the survey is 

 

Thank you!

I filled out the survey and it took me over an hour. I put my all into it. Will someone on this forum let us knew if any feedback is published?

I'm in touch with one of the founders of CEP who is a friend of mine...

 

he says so far about 250 people have filled it out and they're trying to figure out now how to parse the data...

 

I'll try to keep you all apprised as I hear anything.

Shared with friends. This is a huge step in the right direction.

In the UK there is currently a drive to get disabled back to work and they are

discovering just how many are disabled with mental illness. This may change the prescribing 

practices when they realise that it is the drugs that are disabling people rather than the illness

they were prescribed for.
