Why I am against the unnecessary drugging of so many of our school aged children for unproven and subjectively defined behavioural \ mental illness conditions,which may fall in the normal range, using unscientifically designed checklists:
The GOOD it does is only TEMPORARY
The HARM it does could be PERMANENT
-physically and psychologically
(Derived from Ghandi’s quote of what he thought of the effects of state violence which, some would say, might include the systemic and widening of prescribing psychotropic drugs for children.)
- I posit that drugging children could be a form of abuse of power by some medics and even some parents on the most vulnerable sector within society, our children. It may be a form of state condoned abuse, through either commission or omission.
