TeenScreen - What a Scam!

TeenScreen is one of those things that sounds like a good idea at first. After all, we are all concerned about the rising violence and suicide rates among teens. But when you start actually looking at the plan and its consequences, you soon realize is a nightmare designed to make the situation worse.

The main push behind setting up TeenScreen is coming from the drug company lobby, that want to sell more psych drugs to teenagers, at taxpayer expense.

There is no effective or beneficial mental health treatment coming from the psych community -- all they know how to do is drug, warehouse, and shock. Psychiatric counselling is either ineffective at best or outright harmful at worst. Couple it with the harmful drugs that are administered (now with black box labels on them, thanks to CCHR and other concerned citizens) and you have a recipe for even more Columbine massacres and teen suicides.
