Heat & Your Mental Health


Many of you are taking some form of psychotropic medication. Have you taken the time to read the leaflet about your meds? Did you know that with most psychotropic medications you cannot be out in the sun for extended periods of time? It is hot out in the Cleveland area today and very sunny. Those of you on meds are likely to burn easily in the sun and need to take necessary precautions! If going out please put on sun block with the highest SPF you can find, your meds can make you more susceptible to sun burn and heat stroke so put on a hat to keep your head covered. Be sure to stay hydrated and carry water with you. Try to stay inside as much as possible under air conditioning to avoid negative side effects with you medications.

Stay Cool!
