CDC: Antidepressant use skyrockets 400% in past 20 years

Posted By: wbhazel1 on October 23, 2011 at 3:17 am

This article posted today in USA Today Newspaper and written by Janice Loyd was very interesting.

It reports the dramatic use (overuse) of antidepressant medication among most age groups as well as women and men.

What is particularly alarming however is over 66 % of those taking these medications regularly have not seen a mental health professional.

It is well known in the helping professions that the use of psychiatric medication without conjoint therapy is much less effective.

The question on my mind is why are so many trying to escape their feelings with a pill? Are we uncomfortable with our feelings or emotions? Is it not OK to feel sadness, grief, anger?

Please enjoy the article:
