I am not an expert on Psychiatric Drugs, SSRIs, Mental Illness, Gun Violence or Mass Murders, but after reading the articles presented below, I feel compelled to share them with you. After the horrible, senseless tragedy at the U.S. Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., the media and politicians alike were very quick to tell us that gun laws need to be stricter with better background checks, and that they need to be red flagging people who have “mental issues.” But no one ever mentions, in what appears to be a fact in a considerable amount of cases, that people who have “snapped” and have committed these terrible acts of violence, murder, and mass murder, were actually on prescription drugs prescribed to them by their physician at the time that they committed these crimes. Everyone knows that the Mental Health Care System in the United States is broken but I’m not sure that everyone is aware of the huge influence that the Pharmaceutical Companies have on our health care providers. I am not stating that prescription drugs are bad or that they don’t help people in need. I am presenting the following articles as a possible alternative answer as to what is happening in the U.S., and as food for thought.
