    Praise the Lord – at last some sopport for the help people need to reduce or discontinue these toxic and harmful medications. Let’s hope it happens soon and prevents people from becoming more unwell from the adverse side effects produced by these medications. Thank you CEPUK for your effort in achieving this !

    That’s brilliant news for everyone who has and still is suffering trying to get off the medication, they don’t need anymore.

    The most important part is what and how this support is going to be? What options are? In practical means how our friends are going to be supported? Is a hard path but my understanding is that there is not “one fix all”. People are going to need more than a phone number to call. Are the same ignorant people that have allowed this to happen the ones who are going to support this? We need people in charge that understand the proccess and I do not think are the ones who suppory antipsycotics and mood stabilizers. We need psychiatrist and profesionals of the calibre of Dr Bob Johnson and there are not many. The actual Royal C psychiatrist have not yet demonstrated they are up to scracht!

    Doctors & The ENTIRE Medical Establishments know EXACTLY Who I am & what I am about. “So DO I NOW” !
    Please support all of those that need URGENT & DESPERATE help, from NOT taking these Evil Drugs, to the many countless ones, like myself, who have been seriously damaged & The Medics use IGNORANCE & LIES, to BLOCK US.
    I am so grateful, for any assistance, that I never had from anyone, other than to have to use my phone, to contact many outsiders, that experienced this, of late & helped to Tell the TRUTH & pull me through, against the wishes & Deceits of Doctors, that did not believe me. They MADE my ENTIRE LIFE, A MASSIVE TORMENT !!!
    “I am living PROOF, of just what massive damage, these drugs have attributed & I will never stop campaigning for justice”

    In my experience in Australia of having been to a private clinic to start the taper off benzos voluntarily and then being spat out of the system to deal with this living alone, I found so little support, that I feel that the best help we could have is from others who have gone ahead of us and understand the misery that is Benzo Withdrawal Syndrome and how to survive this. I would call these support people Peer Support Workers and along with this we need Residential 24 hour care that we can check into for the times when we are in crisis and unable to function alone. As we know the only way to safely taper off these dangerous drugs is to taper as slowly as our body dictates as to avoid protracted withdrawal symptoms.
