The STOP Study: Sensible Timely OPtions for reducing inappropriate antidepressant use in general practice.

Congratulations to the Mental Health Research Program who were recently awarded a Therapeutic Guidelines Ltd (TGL)/RACGP Research Grant that will support a pilot study seeking to identify the GP and patient barriers to reducing inappropriate use of antidepressants.  

Professor Jane Gunn, Dr Susie Fletcher, and Dr Chris Otjes in collaboration with Pharmacology Professor Daniel Hoyer hope to build on this research with the aim of assisting GPs and patients to make timely decisions about when and how to cease antidepressant use.
