54 Dead and 105 Wounded in Recent Teen and School Shootings

LOS ANGELES, March 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On February 14, Illinois gunman Steven Kazmierczak became the 12th shooter in the past decade under the influence of psychiatric drugs documented by international drug regulatory agencies to cause suicide, mania, psychosis, hallucinations, hostility and in the case of one antidepressant, "homicidal ideation." With casualties from school or teen shootings now totaling 54 dead and 105 wounded, the mental health watchdog Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) says it is time to stop vested interests from spouting their usual propaganda about psychiatric drugs, and instead demand a federal investigation for the sake of public safety. While the psychiatric/pharmaceutical industries have persisted in vehemently denying that antidepressants and other psychiatric drugs cause violence, CCHR is quick to point out that it was similar vested interests that stalled the FDA from issuing black box warnings on suicide for more than 13 years. (See video from 1991 FDA hearing. http://www.cchr.org/video/psychiatric_drugs/fda_hearing_1991.html)

In a new 11-minute documentary (http://www.cchr.org/school_shootings/index.html) entitled Psychiatry's Prescription For Violence, psychiatrists, psychologists, professors, attorneys and medical experts join CCHR in exposing the link between psychiatric drugs and acts of violence that have been buried by those putting profit before public safety. CCHR's battle for full public disclosure on the risks of these drugs spans nearly two decades and is chronicled in a new report (http://www.cchr.org/media/pdfs/Exposing_the_Dangers_of_Antidepressants_Des pite_Cover-Ups.pdf) entitled CCHR: Exposing the Dangers of Antidepressants and Other Psychotropic Drugs--Despite FDA/Psychiatric-Pharmaceutical Cover-Ups.

Today growing numbers of medical professionals, scientists and doctors are publishing studies exposing the facts that have been kept from the public. In September 2006, Dr. David Healy, Director of Cardiff University's North Wales department of psychological medicine, and colleagues published the findings of their study of the antidepressant, Paxil, in the journal Public Library of Science Medicine stating: "We've got good evidence that the drugs can make people violent and you'd have to reason from that that there may be more episodes of violence." In a 2003/2004 analysis of psychiatric drug induced violence/suicide, published in International Journal of Risk & Safety in Medicine, psychiatrist Peter Breggin concludes, "There are many reports and studies confirming that SSRI [Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor] antidepressants can cause violence, suicide, mania and other forms of psychotic and bizarre behavior."

CCHR's new documentary is featured on its website http://www.cchr.org, on a section entitled "Psychiatric Drugs, Violence and School Shootings." The website also features medical studies regarding treating patients without the use of psychiatric drugs under "Solutions/Alternatives."

What others are saying about the documentary:

"An excellent tool to educate and empower parents on the abuse and proliferation of psychoactive drugs throughout our families and school systems. Parents need to be made aware of the devastating effects of these poisons on our most cherished resource."

-Dr. Colbey Forman, Dean of Barron University, School of Psychoneurology

"The documentary is not only excellent qualitatively but extremely accurate. The public and the professional communities need to see it."

-Dr. David Stein, psychologist

"I know that I have to go back to my own state and do what I can to stop the overuse and overprescription of these psychiatric drugs. It is imperative that we educate the public and I am sure they will be as outraged as I am."

-Georgia Senator Donzella James

"A screeching wake-up call to the desensitizing of the human soul."

-Carlos Ramirez, actor
