FROM THE FRYING PAN INTO THE FIRE!!!

UTAH’S NEW SUICIDE “PREVENTION” PROGRAM

Utah has long led the way in the use of antidepressant medications. In the early 90’s I was documenting cases of children as young as TWO whose parents were being pushed into giving their toddlers these drugs by a place called the Children’s Center in Salt Lake City! And now they are wondering why suicide is the second leading cause of death for children 10 – 17 when there are Black Box Warnings on these drugs that they DOUBLE the rate of compulsive suicidal thoughts and planning for those under the age of 25?!

The latest “solution” to the high suicide rate in these young people which is to be implimented by July is to hire a suicide specialist for the school system.

Their job? You guessed it! They will be the head drug peddler for the school as a “requirement” for the job!

I quote: “The new specialist will help students understand there are ways to get help if they need it….The second big part of it is to make sure that there are programs in place for parents (to) know, understand and recognize the symptoms that go along with suicide,” she said.

“The suicide prevention specialist will have to help parents and other students spot the warning signs that precede suicide.”

Sounds all rosy until you read the last line of that paragraph:

“Also, they will have to provide mental health treatment for students who do make an attempt on their own lives.” Note the “HAVE TO PROVIDE MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT” which always means antidepressants in the state of Utah and just about anywhere else on the planet! That mental health treatment is NOT offered in the way of counseling or Cognetive Behavioral Treatment or any other alternative to drugging the children with antidepressants.

WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants we always recommend that you also give reference to the 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 we have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!
