Event description

Description

BILD and STOMP - Stopping Over-Medication of People with a learning disability, autism, or both - are working together to promote the STOMP campaign and the key messages about Positive Behaviour Support.

Adults, children and young people with learning disabilities or autism, or both, who also may have mental health conditions are at risk of developing behaviours that are concerning or challenging and this can lead to over medication or the use of other unnecessary restrictive practices.

BILD and STOMP will be running a series of free drop in awareness sessions around the country in July.

The sessions are for education, health and care workers and any others interested who support people who are at risk of exclusion and over medication. We would particularly welcome families to these sessions.

The sessions will be interactive, and attendees will learn about the STOMP campaign and about how working together to deliver Positive Behaviour Support can promote the best outcomes, by supporting human rights and lowering the risk of hospital admission, readmission or out of area placements.
