Free Awareness Sessions about STOMP and Positive Behaviour Support in July

NHS Health Education England have asked BILD and STOMP – Stopping Over-Medication of People with a learning disability, autism, or both – to run a series of free drop in awareness sessions around the country in July to promote the STOMP campaign and the key messages about Positive Behaviour Support.

Adults, children and young people with learning disabilities or autism, or both, who also may have mental health conditions are at risk of developing behaviours that are concerning or challenging and this can lead to over medication or the use of other unnecessary restrictive practices.

The sessions are for education, health and care workers and any others interested who support people who are at risk of exclusion and over medication. We would particularly welcome families to these sessions.
