Please join the debate calling for choice for anti-psychotic use

Subject: Antipsychotics: Time to introduce choice?

Dear Friends and Colleagues

We (Tony Morrison, myself, David Shiers, Doug Turkington) are trying to start a debate around anti-psychotic treatment and choice, drawing attention to what we perceive as a changing cost-benefit ratio. Please find attached our paper published today in BJP, together with a companion piece by the editor, Peter Tyrer.

Whether you agree with our arguments or not, please do consider contributing to the debate: http://bjp.rcpsych.org/letters/submit/bjprcpsych;201/2/83

*Service-user opinions will be particularly important here.*

Please also consider distributing this email and the attached papers around your networks – I’d be particularly grateful if you could pass it onto any service user / charitable organisations you work with

Thanks.
Paul
