HeadMeds is a unique UK website about mental health medication for young people aged 13-25. It has been created by YoungMinds and funded by Comic Relief and the Nominet Trust as part of the Innovation Labs (www.innovationlabs.org.uk ) project which has developed a range of digital projects to improve young people's mental health. Created in the style of the 'Talk to Frank' website, HeadMeds provides young people with accessible and useful information about mental health medication during a time which is often confusing, frightening and isolating for them. It includes information about potential side effects when a young person should go and get help and provides answers to some of the difficult questions that young people may have around their medication but may feel uncomfortable asking their GP about, including will it affect my sex life or can I drink with this medication? Complete with real life stories and created side by side with young people HeadMeds provides much needed, straight talk on mental health medication whenever young people need it. The website has been developed by a range of pharmacology experts and young people. It has been endorsed by the Royal College of General Practitioners and the College of Mental Health Pharmacy and we have been inundated with support for this invaluable resource since we launched the site.
