Diagnosis and medication fact sheets
Diagnosis facts sheets
Some people may have been provided with, or chosen to get, a diagnosis. Receiving a diagnosis can result in a range of different emotions and some people may want further information. The following resources might assist:
- SANE Australia
- Better Health Victoria
- COPMI (Children of Parents with a Mental Illness) – Videos
- headspace (information for young people)
Medication fact sheets
Your treating or care team can also provide additional information.
There are a range of ways to find out about medications. Barwon Health has a partnership with the Choice and Medication website, which contains up-to-date medication fact sheets that outline the benefits and risks of each medication.
We encourage all consumers, supporters and families to connect with their treating or care team for additional information and support. It is important to let them know what has and hasn’t worked.
Please refer to Tools & Resources for additional information on Advanced Statements and Nominated Person/s.
