Psychiatric side effects major resource upgrade of web site
Awareness of Iatrogenic psychiatric adverse reactions can save lives.
Our web site www.april.org.uk needs upgrading and modernising, to make it adaptable for viewing on cell phones and tablets. We need to include up to date information and add pdf files and eventually e-books for downloading.. However this will cost money and we are appealing for donations to ensure this valuable resource continues to be available.
APRIL has collated information for 18 years since the charity was founded. Valuable data including from official Inquiries and science based information as well as personal experiences of psychiatric adverse drug reactions. The data and support information will continue to be a valued resource for patients, bereaved family members, coroners and health professionals. The information we provide empowers people and sways the attitude of health professionals who may not have considered their patient may indeed be suffering from iatrogenic (treatment induced) harm as opposed to suffering from a new disease or illness.
We totally rely on financial support from people we have helped, friends and family members. We have no paid staff but now need funds for the new web site and for help to research and include up to date information.
We hope to raise enough money for the updated web site and any excess will be used to produce a series of books with information about everyday medicines, anaesthetics, SSRI and other antidepressants and drugs that are addictive including benzodiazepines and Z drugs.
Our conferences led to important documentary programmes on TV and radio and over 30,000 people have accessed our blog. Many more have found the web site and we have been told we have saved lives.
Any amount you can donate will be used solely for the pupose of providing the Internet resource that is so valued and definitely needed.
