In summary, STOMP aims to:

• Improve the quality of life of people with a learning disability, autism or both

• Make sure people only receive psychotropic medication (medicines which alter consciousness, mood or perception) for the right reasons and in the right amount

• Improve understanding of psychotropic medicines and when they should or should not be given

• Improve understanding of alternatives to medication

• Make sure that people with a learning disability, autism or both are involved in decisions about their health and treatment
