STAFF REPORT

LIBERTY Capt. Toby Meloro of the Liberty Police Department was named Ohio’s 2009 Crisis Intervention Team Officer of the Year at the annual convention of the Ohio Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness in May.

Meloro was recognized for his handling of an incident June 10, 2008, in Liberty Township in which a man had locked himself in his garage with the intention of killing himself, according to a NAMI newsletter.

The man had lost his job, was on medication for depression, was having marital problems and was depressed about not being able to support his newborn baby.

Meloro, a negotiator for the Violent Crimes Task Force, began talking with the man, who held a shotgun under his chin for more than 90 minutes in his garage as Meloro talked to him.

The man, who eventually put down the weapon and was taken into custody, la- ter said he had intended to kill his wife and his child and have a shootout with police to end his own life, officers said.

The man has gotten mental-health treatment, is back with his wife and family and says he owes his life to the Liberty Police Department, the newsletter said.

CIT is an effort between law enforcement and the mental-health community to help law- enforcement officers handle incidents involving people with mental illness.

In Trumbull County, 95 police officers and 11 other professionals have received CIT training since February 2006.

Ann Blake Tracy, Executive Director,
International Coalition for Drug Awareness
(DrugAwareness.Org & SSRIstories.Net)
Author: ”Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare – The Complete Truth of the Full Impact of Antidepressants Upon Us & Our World” & Withdrawal CD “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!”

She has specialized since 1990 in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications (such as Prozac, Sarafem, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Serzone, Remeron, Anafranil, Fen-Phen, Redux and Meridia as well as the new atypical antipsychotics Zyprexa, Geodon, Seroquel and Abilify), as well as pain killers, and has testified before the FDA and congressional subcommittee members on antidepressants.

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: store.drugawareness.org And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan. You can even get a whole month of access to the withdrawal CD with tips on rebuilding after the meds, all six of my DVDs, hundreds of radio interviews, lectures, TV interviews I have done over the years PLUS my book on antidepressants with more information than you will find anywhere else for only $30 membership for a month (that is only $5 more than the book alone would cost) at www.drugawareness.org. (Definitely the best option to save outrageous postage charges for those out of the country!)
