Sobriety Films UK announces an exclusive virtual screening of award winning U.S mental health documentary Medicating Normal. Celebrating Mental Health Awareness Week, we present this powerful and emotive film for its first public screening followed by a panel of experts by experience and experts in the field of psychiatry. Medicating Normal follows the journey of five people adversely affected by the psychiatric medication prescribed to help them.
As UK prescriptions of antidepressants have soared to women and young people during Covid, and with the recent Cochrane Review calling for immediate informed information for doctors and patients about the side effects and safe withdrawal from SSRI’s, we ask - are we looking at a new mental health crisis of prescription dependency in women and young people and quality of life depleting side effects.
Frankie Bridge, celebrity and mental health advocate spoke out in the national press about the withdrawal she experiences from her antidepressants if she misses her daily dose. Frankie believes that she will be on them for the rest of her life.
Please join us to express your opinions, share your experiences and asks questions to the panel. World expert on SSRI’s Dr David Healy, journalist Miranda Levy, campaigner Stevie Lewis and researcher Mark Horowitz phd will be leading the debate.
Thursday 13th May 18.30 (BST)
