Half of youngsters given drugs to address mental health problems said they felt “frightened” when they were prescribed the medicine, a poll suggests.
Forty nine percent of those aged 13 to 25 said they were concerned when given drugs.
Half said they were “dissatisfied” about the information provided about possible side effects, the survey of 250 youngsters who had experience of mental health medication found.
The poll comes as a new online tool is launched by charity YoungMinds to try to demystify information about mental health medication.
