HeadMeds is a website about psychiatric drugs, designed with and for young people, and powered by Young Minds. The site developed through the Innovation Labs programme.

During Innovation Labs young people wanted good quality, accessible information about medication they might be prescribed for mental health problems… but they wanted it on their terms and covering the issues like side effects, whether you can drink, or whether the medication might affect your sex life.

It’s a hard task to get right… which is why Young Minds worked closely with the Royal College of General Practitioners and the College of Mental Health Pharmacists to ensure the content was accurate and valid, and with young people to ensure it worked for them.
