Welcome to the Bristol & District Tranquilliser Project
The Project helps those having problems with certain prescribed psychotropic medication (benzodiazepine tranquillisers/sleeping tablets, other sleeping tablets & antidepressants). We help people who are taking, who are considering taking or have recently withdrawn from this medication. We also support friends & family of those having problems with their medications. Our Annual General Meeting will be held at the BAWA Centre (589 Southmead Rd, Bristol BS34 7RG) on Friday 21 October 2022 at 11am. We are delighted to announce the speaker will be Dr Anne Guy. Further details will be sent to our members, but if you would like to attend or receive further information please email us or call our helpline. We look forward to seeing many faces - old and new - at our first physical AGM since 2019. We have re-opened our face-to-face services within Bristol & are in the process of contacting existing clients about the additional services we can provide. Please call our helpline for further details and to arrange a face-to-face. There is some very sad news Sadly, Ian Singleton passed away on the 2 May 2022. Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife Sue and the family at this sad time. As a founder member of the Project, Ian touched and saved so many lives in his dedication to his work. The project and our clients will remember his empathy, compassion, and kindness in all that he did.
“He was one of the originals, if it were not for Ian I would not be here today”
“Terribly sad news, he was a friend and he meant so much to me, I will always remember our times in the group”
“For three years Ian walked a very dark path with me when I was completely alone. He really was the light that guided me out of despair. I and many hundreds like me will always remember him with heartfelt gratitude"
"I remember Ian as a very kind, gentle, solid and wise person. Although I had few calls with him whilst coming off anti depressants, those I did have were invaluable. He knew what he was talking about and was very helpful sharing knowledge of withdrawal and reassurance. He had a grounding sense of humour and was real about his own experience of coming off medication which encouraged me. He was also great to work with on the helpline"
