World Tapering Awareness
Day
11/5/2022

World Tapering Day is a worldwide event to

increase awareness of the fact that

antidepressants, benzodiazepines, sleeping medication, antipsychotics, anti-epileptic drugs, mood stabilizers, opioid painkillers such as oxycodone, tramadol and other drugs that can cause withdrawal need to be tapered much more slowly than most doctors and patients realize. Lowering the dosage of psychotropic medication too quickly can result in severe damage.

Doctors need to acknowledge this and become more careful in advising patients how fast to taper.

We have had suicidal thoughts and emotions and problems that felt unsolvable. Here are our stories, including research based ways for managing the most painful moments of life. We teach Mindfulness, Mindfulness of Current Emotion, Opposite Action and Paced-breathing. These skills are part of Dialectical Behavior Therapy or DBT, proven to be helpful for people considering suicide. These tools are not considered a replacement for one-to-one counseling. You do not have to have suicidal thoughts or mental health problems to use these tools – they are useful for most people and many problems.
