STOMP card game has arrived

Exciting new STOMP card game has just been launched.

This new card game prompts conversations between people with Learning Disabilities, Autism or both and their support staff about psychotropic medication. We are looking forward to using this exciting new resource across our services.

STOMP

Stomp stands for stopping over medication of people with a learning disability, autism or both with psychotropic medicines. STOMP is about helping people to stay well and have a good quality of life.

Public Health England says that every day about 30,000 to 35,000 adults with a learning disability are taking psychotropic medicines, when they do not have the health conditions the medicines are for. Children and young people are also prescribed them.

We are proud to be one of the independent healthcare providers working with NHS England on this fantastic initiative.
