Psychotropics CCS Campaign

This communications kit supports the launch of the national Psychotropic Medicines in Cognitive Disability or Impairment Clinical Care Standard on 9 May 2024.

Please show your support for the clinical care standard by downloading and sharing the content on your website, social networks or within your health service organisation.

You can use these resources to raise awareness about the new standard and best practice care for the use of psychotropic medicines in people with cognitive disability or impairment, particularly when managing behaviours of concern.
