"If you do the investigative digging required to find these details, obscured as they often are, you will find that, in almost every case, the mass shooter of the day was on some form of SSRI antidepressant – one of the Columbine shooters, the 2013 theater shooter in Aurora, Colorado, etc."

    I would say that in many cases it's a combo of psychiatry and pharma.

    One of my children [then in high school] was having issues with stress and mild depression. We took her to a [health care provider] recommended shrink, hoping they would teach her some behavioral habits and coping skills. To my great disappointment and considerable anger, their response was "here, take a pill".

    My opinion of the psychiatric profession took a nosedive, and has not recovered.

      Seems to me it's been a bit of snake-oil for a long time. Just about anybody with children has been to the mental health clinics since the Covid shutdown. My kids suffered. It looks like all of them we know did.

      I have seen people I know on SSRIs completely loose their f'n minds. I'll spare you the details but it was nightmarish to see. One was my wife's best friend. That was very sad.
