Baby With His Safe and Effective Antidepressants
Although it is rare that I send information out from another group, in this instance I believe this is such a critical subject and such a tragic situation worldwide currently that MUST be not only addressed but must be stopped dead in its tracks! The drugging of infants and toddlers with mind altering medications! Within the past couple of weeks I have seen the most recent stats out of New Zealand forwarded region by region. And what I found the most shocking was the HUGE jump in the use of mind altering medications among this young age group!!!! They went from double to ten times an increase in numbers depending upon the region!
This bill being voted on today could do that same here in America. There is no valid excuse for this drugging of infants! It needs to stop! The summer of 1998 I wrote an article titled, The Next Generation Medical Guinea Pigs–Our Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil Babies, which ran in both of the major newspapers in Salt Lake City, the Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News because this insane prescribing of these drugs to infants and toddlers began there in the early 90’s. That article from nearly two decades ago can be found on our website at the following link: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-babies/
LIST OF CONGRESSIONAL COSPONSORS FOR THIS BILL
Here is a list of Congressional cosponsors of the bill state by state who likely have no idea whatsoever what it is they are actually supporting. It would be a good idea to contact all of them to wake them up to what these drugs are doing to our society and our future: https://www.congress.gov/…/house-bill/2646/cosponsors
PLEASE CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN TODAY BEFORE VOTE THIS AFTERNOON
As you may know, a highly controversial bill, HR 2646: “Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis” is going to the House of Representative floor for a vote, tomorrow, July 6th and 1:30 pm Eastern Time.
The entire bill is designed to benefit the mental health industry, and not the general public. Given the late notice on this bill going to the floor, we are asking all supporters to email their Congressional Representatives on just one major flaw of a massively flawed bill, the section focusing on labeling and drugging children.
Specifically, HR 2646: “Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis”
Includes a section that focuses on increasing mental health treatment for infants and young children birth to 5 years of age.
The bill provides grants to train pediatric primary care providers to identify, diagnose, treat, and refer children with mental illness (there are no objective medical tests to diagnose any mental illness) and to develop programs for infants and children under 5 years of age who are at risk of developing a mental illness, show early signs of mental illness, or have been diagnosed with a mental illness.
Subtitle C, Sec. 399Z-2 “Infants and Early Childhood Mental Health Promotion, Intervention, and Treatment” provides for a statewide network of psychiatrists to provide “telehealth” consultations to pediatricians. This is dangerous, given the current standard treatment in the mental health field is psychotropic drugs. Children’s brains are still developing until the age of 24.
Already in the U.S., 1 million infants and young children birth to 5 years of age in America are on a psychotropic drug, according to the latest figures from IMS Health. You can view the total number of children on psychiatric drugs here with the figures from IMS Health
Please vote against HR 2646; it may do more harm than help. You can find the emails for your Congressmen herehttp://www.contactingthecongress.org/
