STOMP – Count me in!
Date: Tuesday 22 January 2018
Count me in! is a cross-sector conference for people who are challenging practices which result in over-medication of people with learning disabilities, autism or both. It will provide insights into what has been achieved so far through the STOMP campaign, provide opportunities for cross-sector discussion and help you think creatively about your next step in tackling over-medication. You may be a health or social care professional, a self-advocate or a family carer. This conference is for you. We hope you can join us.

Mencap have created a survey for their Treat me well campaign, which aims to transform the way people with a learning disability are treated in hospital.
They want to hear more from people with a learning disability and the people who support them about their experiences in hospital.
The more responses, the stronger the results!
