STOMP stands for stopping over medication for people with a learning disability, autism or both with psychotropic medicines. It is a national project involving many different organisations which are helping to stop the over use of these medicines.
STOMP aims to:
- Improve the quality of life of people with a learning disability, autism or both of any age
- Make sure people only receive psychotropic medication for the right reasons and in the right amount
- Improve understanding of psychotropic medicines and when they should or should not be given
- Improve understanding of alternatives to medication
- Make sure that people with a learning disability, autism or both are involved in decisions about their health and treatment.
Psychotropic medication should only be prescribed for managing behaviour which challenges when it is used in combination with psychology or other therapies.
Psychotropic medication is often prescribed for people with a learning disability, autism or both with an acceptable diagnosis of a serious mental illness such as psychosis or bipolar disorder. STOMP also aims to ensure that medications used in this way are reviewed and monitored appropriately
