A POCKET GUIDE TO AGITATION AND WHAT TO DO IN A CRISIS
This pocket guide is for people who experience agitation, their carers and close friends. This brief guide compliments the full version which can be accessed via GAMIAN-Europe and EUFAMI websites.
It provides key information on how to recognise the early signs and symptoms of agitation and what to do if a crisis occurs.
There is a crisis card at the end of this guide that can be used to provide emergency contact details and preferences for treatment and care during an episode of agitation.
The pocket guide is available below in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
GAMIAN-Europe, in collaboration with EUFAMI, previously produced a guide which aims to provide information for people who experience agitation and those close to them. It includes a description of what agitation is, how it can be managed and what available treatments can help. It is written from the perspective of people with lived experience of agitation and carers, and also draws on existing research.
