A Prescription for Teen Suicide

October 31, 2007 2 comments

Julie was in her final year of high school and looking forward to her plans for life, which included marriage and children. When she began having trouble at a new school after a bout of insomnia, she became withdrawn and quiet. A psychiatrist prescribed her an antidepressant. One week later, her father walked into his garage and found his daughter had hanged herself from the ceiling.

12-year-old Caitlin hanged herself using shoelaces in a school bathroom stall. Only two months prior, she had been labeled as depressed and prescribed an antidepressant, which led to prescriptions for three other psychiatric drugs. Her father stated: She wasn’t in control of the drugs and they were driving her feelings to the point where she couldn’t stand it anymore.

After moving to a new neighborhood, Matt’s parents noticed he was a bit sullen. Teachers recommended that Matt, aged 13, get professional help. A psychiatrist gave him a free sample of an antidepressant. Seven days later, Matt’s mother went to collect the laundry from her sons room and found he had hanged himself inside his closet.

Over 100 children have committed suicide while taking antidepressants like Prozac, prescribed for what their parents were led to believe was a chemical imbalance in the brain. However, little did they know that this was a drug company-marketing scheme designed to increase the sales of antidepressants. This admission by several executives of the American Psychiatric Association was made in 2005, some 18 years after Prozac came on the market.

Facts:

  • Unlike medical diseases, for which physical tests exist to diagnose, no such test exists for any mental disorder. The director of the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health testified before Congress that not a single cause or cure has been established for any mental disorder.
  • Drug companies produced new antidepressants with claims that they could correct a chemical imbalance in the brain that causes depression despite no test existing to prove this. The FDA there to protect the health of American citizens did not require any proof of this theory either. Investigative journalists determined drug company scams to get psychoactive (mind altering) drugs approved, reporting:
  • Drug companies fund studies that show the drugs efficacy in treating an obscurely known mental disorder in the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders the billing bible of psychiatry.
  • Prominent psychiatrists are recruited to publicly affirm the malady as a huge problem.
  • PR firms (for the drug companies) launch campaigns to promote the new disorder, using dramatic statistics from corporate-sponsored studies.
  • Patient groups subsidized by drug makersare recruited or invented to serve as the public face for the disorder, supplying quotes for the media.
  • The drug gets approved for use in this now epidemic problem.
  • They said just once wouldn’t hurt….

    They said just once wouldn’t hurt….

    The free booklet, “The Truth about Cocaine” (available on the drugfreeworld.org website) describes this drug, once the favorite of corporate executives and entertainment personalities, now a deadly street killer.

    Ecstasy is usually taken orally in pill, tablet or capsule form. Taking more than one at a time is called “bumping.”

    Ecstasy is a synthetic drug made in a laboratory. Makers may add anything they choose to the drug, such as caffeine, amphetamines and even cocaine. Ecstasy is illegal and has effects similar to hallucinogens and stimulants. It is addictive. The pills are of different colors and are sometimes marked with cartoon-like images. Mixing ecstasy with alcohol is extremely dangerous and can be lethal.

    The stimulative effects of drugs like ecstasy enable the user to dance for long periods, and when combined with the hot, crowded conditions found at raves, can lead to extreme dehydration and heart or kidney failure.

    Check out this intense video. I don’t want to say too much about it, you just have to watch it yourself.

    As cocaine interferes with the way the brain processes chemicals, one needs more and more of the drug just to feel “normal.” People who become addicted to cocaine (as with most other drugs) lose interest in life.

    Coming down from the drug causes severe depression, which becomes deeper and deeper after each use. This can get so severe that a person will do almost anything to get the drug — even commit murder. And if he or she can’t get cocaine, the depression can get so intense it can drive the addict to suicide.

    Children are the future,
    but psychiatry is making sure
    20 million wont have one

    by prescribing them psychiatric drugs. These drugs are so dangerous that government authorities have issued black box warnings of mania, hostility, suicide, stroke and sudden death. 20,000,000 means more children taking potentially lethal psychiatric drugs than the entire populations of Australia or Ireland, Denmark, Norway and Finland combined.

    Think psychiatry has nothing to do with you?
    Think again.

    Through rare historical and contemporary footage and interviews with more than 160 doctors, attorneys, educators, survivors and experts on the mental health industry and its abuses, this riveting documentary blazes the bright light of truth on the brutal pseudoscience and the multi-billion dollar fraud that is psychiatry.

    We think you have the right to know the cold, hard facts about psychiatry, its practitioners and the threat they pose to our children.

    Order Psychiatry: An Industry of Death documentary and companion brochure. Distribute it to othersassociates, family and friends.  Warn them about psychiatrys damaging treatments.  When you watch the DVD you will be outraged and will want to act to end these abuses.

    Medical Marijuana is a Crime Against Humanity

    October 29, 2007 4 comments

    The same way psychiatrists prescribe psychotropic drugs, for a “chemical imbalance” in the brain which is causing a “mental disorder,” marijuana is being prescribed, in much the same way. And the only thing these drugs are really doing is masking the symptoms with addictive and mind altering drugs as opposed to solving the underlying problem which is causing these symptoms.

    No one denies that people can have difficult problems in their lives, that at times they can be mentally unstable. Mental health care is therefore both valid and necessary. However, the emphasis must be on workable mental healing methods that improve and strengthen individuals and thereby society by restoring people to personal strength, ability, competence, confidence, stability, responsibility and spiritual well-being.

    What I’m suggesting is practical solutions to life’s problems. Solutions which get you off mind-altering substances and on a road to better mental health.

    The Scientology religion contains workable answers to the problems people face in their lives. The subject matter of Scientology is all life. It contains practical means through which predictable improvement can be obtained in any area to which it is applied.

    Scientology recognizes that man is not just so many vials of chemicals fortuitously combined into a remarkable stimulus-response machine. Scientology views man as a spiritual being with native capabilities which can be improved far beyond what is generally believed possible. In fact, it has been demonstrated that man deteriorates to the degree that he denies his spiritual nature and ceases to live with moral values, such as trust, honesty, integrity and other sometimes intangible characteristics.
    By seeing man as essentially spiritual, Scientology follows in the traditional view of man and his relationship to the universe. Scientology, however, is unique in that it contains practical means of enabling man to resolve his material concerns and so come to achieve his spiritual aspirations. In this regard Scientology is an improvement over any earlier practice in terms of what it can actually do to help man.

    The problems of drugs, education, morals, relationships, trust and others contain solutions in Scientology which do not beget further problems.

    The situations to which Scientology can be applied are as varied as human activity itself.

    If a child cannot read well and is falling behind the rest of the class, Scientology study technology can help dispense with a liability that would otherwise affect the rest of his or her life.

    With Scientology, many, many marriages have been saved and strengthened.

    The emphasis in Scientology is on the application of exact methodologies in order to bring about change in the conditions of an individual’s life. The aim of Scientology is to put a person into a condition where he can be more self-determined about living a happier, more fulfilling life.
    There can be no purpose worth contemplating which does not include happiness and experience. When a man is no longer able to envision happiness as a part of his future, that man is dead.”

    — L. Ron Hubbard

    Millions of people all over the world have used Scientology to improve their lives and help their fellows. This handbook contains the basic Scientology principles and methods most often employed to help people get along better in interpersonal relationships, be more successful in their work, improve their family life, and effectively help their friends, family and associates do the same.

    Scientology does not require that one change his or her beliefs or convictions to use it successfully. All you have to do is apply the data and observe for yourself whether or not it works. You as you are now, can do more good for yourself and for those around you than you ever imagined, and gain enormous personal satisfaction doing it.

     

    I have therefore provided links to on-line material which provides solutions to life’s big and little problems.
