"It's just a way to put more people on prescription drugs," said Marcia Angell, a medical ethics lecturer at Harvard Medical School and author of "The Truth About Drug Companies." She said such programs will boost the sale of antidepressants even after the FDA in September ordered a "black box" label warning that the pills might spur suicidal thoughts or actions in minors.

Since talk therapy has repeatedly been shown to be far safer than any drugs you would think that talk therapy would be what is pushed to help kids. But no! The drugs will be pushed because they make more money and they cost less to use. Who doesn't have a tight budget these days? It's a setup and it's at the expense of the children. Better to leave them alone and work out their own problems then drug them into a suicidal stupor.

What we are witnessing is a desparate attempt by some very desparate individuals to save their phony jobs.
