Today is the One Year Anniversary of Robin Williams’ Death

According to Newsweek the death of Robin Williams caused an unprecedented mark on suicide hotline which suicide prevention experts are still trying to make sense of.

“The impact has continued into this calendar year. In 2015, visits to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s web site have been up 60 percent. Local call lines have also seen an impact; the Crisis Services hotline in Buffalo, New York, for instance, says that it has seen a 15 percent increase in call volume during the first seven months of 2015 compared with the same period in 2014. Executive director Jessica C. Pirro notes Williams’s suicide and encouragement to seek help as a possible cause.

“At the time of the loss [of Williams], there was such an enormous spike in interest in the whole topic of suicide,” says Robert Gebbia, the CEO of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). “We saw increases at the time in calls to the crisis line, visits to the website.… Like most things, it certainly waned a bit. But I think there was a lasting bump in interest in our society by people around the country.”

And just how much money did Pharma pull in from that “lasting bump in interest” surrounding suicide and the hotlines set up by who?

Just WHO is the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention?

You do not need to look very far to find out who is behind this organization. As you will recall I recently put out an article on how Senator Charles Grassley found in a Senate probe that NAMI, the National Alliance for Mental Illness, is funded 80% by Pharma.

Well at first glance this American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has a couple of very interesting fellows as directors on their Board. First of all there is Charles B. Nemeroff, M.D., Ph.D. now at the University of Miami after a Senate probe found that he had hidden millions in income from Pharma as the department chair in Psychiatry for Emory University. Which you can find information on in this older blog I put out on him:

Interestingly Dr. Nemeroff was also the lead featured speaker this year at the American Psychiatric Association convention.

Another noted director on their board is J. John Mann, M.D. from Columbia University Medical Center. John Mann is quoted extensively in my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!, because of his extensive research on serotonin which basically proves the serotonin hypothesis behind antidepressants to be completely backwards.

Andy Vickery who has been the lead attorney in fighting the majority of suicide cases nationwide against the makers of SSRI antidepressants referred to Dr. Mann at the 2006 FDA hearing as a “Pharma Whore” which becomes quite apparent when you read his early research on serotonin and then hear him speak about it when under oath in court or hear the opposite from him when he testifys to the FDA. Under oath he says when antidepressants work by impairing serotonin metabolism (which they all do) they will produce impulsive murder or suicide. When testifying to the FDA you will hear the exact opposite come out of his mouth about the safety of these drugs.

So How Much Did Pharma Make By Killing Robin Williams?

So just how much money did Pharma make by Robin Williiam’s dying on the SNRI antidepressant Remeron – one of the two SNRI antidepressants Andrea Yates was taking when she drowned her five children? Obviously Robin’s death brought in a whole lot of new customers who are now addicted to these very highly addictive antidepressant medications. And how many of them have now already lost their lives in the way Robin lost his?

This will make money for Phama for many years to come. Robins’ death, just as all the other suicides and murder-suicides induced by their antidepressants, was not a sad and tragic thing for them as it was for the rest of us who know well how he really died and how all the rest of them died. I am sure they still smile all the way to the bank! Profiting from murder is what this is….beyond blood money! How long will it go on before the world wakes up to this biggest lie of all that surrounds us?
