Mental Health Watchdog Calls for Investigation into Rise in College Suicides


CCHR is calling for an investigation into the link between the increasing number of suicides and the increasing use of psychiatric drugs by college students. [2]But what is not being as widely promoted is the number of college students taking psychiatric drugs with many students arriving to campus already on an antidepressant. [4][5][6] Yet the solutions that are being pushed to stem the tide of college suicides are access to more mental health programs, funding for such programs and drugs. All in the name of ‘mental health.’” For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.orgSources:[1] Suicide Prevention Resource Center (2014) Suicide Among College and University Students in the United States, http://www.sprc.org/sites/default/files/migrate/library/SuicideAmongCollegeStudentsInUS.pdf[2] The College Mental Health Crisis: Focus on Suicide (2017) Gene Beresin https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/the-college-mental-health-crisis-focus-on-suicide_us_58b47017e4b0658fc20f987c[3] The Antidepressant Generation (2014) Doris Iarovici, M.D. http://www.center4research.org/antidepressants-increase-suicide-attempts-risks/[5] The Relationship Between General Population Suicide Rates and Mental Health Funding, Service Provision and National Policy: a Cross-National Studyhttps://www.researchgate.net/publication/26713983_The_Relationship_Between_General_Population_Suicide_Rates_and_Mental_Health_Funding_Service_Provision_and_National_Policy_a_Cross-National_Study[6] National suicide rates and mental health system indicators: An ecological study of 191 countrieshttp://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0160252713000587National News Journalist Exposes Link Between Antidepressants & Violence/Suicide
