Wonder who is footing the bill (mental health or pharmacutical industry?) No science, no medical model, no evident based medicine for psychiatry (mental health). Whats to talk about at this Conference On Bipolar Disorder and ADHD?
San Francisco Cronicle
Most parents have never heard of him, but Joseph Biederman of Harvard may be the United Statesí most influential doctor when it comes to determining whether their children are normal or mentally ill.
In 1996, for example, Biederman suggested that drugs like Ritalin might serve 10 percent of American kids for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. By 2004, one in nine 11-year-old boys was taking the drug. Biederman and his team also are more responsible than anyone for a child bipolar epidemic sweeping America (and no other country) that has 2-year-olds on three or four psychiatric drugs.
The science of childrenís psychiatric medications is so primitive and Biedermanís influence so great that when he merely mentions a drug during a presentation, tens of thousands of children within a year or two will end up taking that drug, or combination of drugs. This happens in the absence of a drug trial of any kind - instead, the decision is based upon word of mouth among the 7,000 child psychiatrists in America.

More crap from the mental health industry
APA admits they have no test for chemical imbalance which caused the psychotropic and anti-depressant drugging of millions of people including children.
It was a falsehood that drove up insurance costs and caused normal people to be subject to toxic poisonous substances at the cost of their sanity.
There is no science to the mental health and counseling industry. They are strictly political and dangerous to the society. http://www.fightforkids.org/the_chemical_imba...
