Prescription Safe Plan awareness

Did you know antidepressants list anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts as possible side-effects? Patients unaware of these risks might not seek support for deteriorating mental health assuming it’s despite the medication.

Safer Prescribing focuses on education to ensure patients are better able to keep safe while using antidepressants. A Prescription Safe Plan is an important tool to support that ambition and is designed to meet both the prescriber’s and patient’s needs.

OLLIE offers Safer Prescribing Awareness Talks for students, parents & carers, schools, and health and educational professionals. These talks will enhance your knowledge, guiding you on how to support individuals starting, changing, or tapering medications with ‘suicidal thoughts’ as a side effect.
