Personal stories videos and audio

We have hundreds, possible tens of hundreds of personal stories and may edit and annonimise comments from people who contacted us by email, letter or via the BBC Action Line, as it is a help to know victims of ADRs, withdrawal effects, or loss of a loved one,  are not alone in their experiences.

The web site is not yet complete so this will be in time.

We have learned so much from those who have contacted us, from the doctors, professors and nurses who attended our conferences, from those we met at some meetings addressing the subject.

Below are a few of the interviews people kindly agreed could be shared, from our conferences. Talks by the doctors are also on the Vimeo web site for your information.
