IMO: Stay away from mind drugs and the mental health industry. There is no medial model. No evidence based medicine. No test or imaging for chemical imbalance of the brain. The industry is based on hearsay and is political.

environmental issues are at stake. Each person that discharges the residue of the drug by human waste is polluting the underground waters which in turn effects those that bathe and eventually use the water for drinking. That in turn creates the chemical catalyst for mental illness including depression on a large scale against the health and welfare of the society.

I wouldn't be vaccinated. However I do believe that there are those who are vaccine injured and those suffering from vaccine caused illness but you are over sighting the aged after the years of inoculation that are no longer children and those that have personality changes since the vaccines.

The gifted child program has a history in the pharmaceutical mind drugging of children and has political and financial rewards for the mental health industry and sales for the long term addiction to mind drugs that has been going on for years.

All parents should be aware of the underlining reasons for childhood stress and the education system.

Smart drugs in the school system and colleges should be known.

Psychiatrist on college campus should be monitored.

The loss of money on college student loans caused by side effects of the pharmaceutical mind drugs (Adderall and others) and harm it has done should be considered. Read on the internet.

Why your kid is drugged in school

How it works:
The State Department of Education gets monies from the Federal Government (Disability) under a program called "IDEA" for each child diagnosed with a disability. A disability could be ADD/ADHD, Bi-polar disorder, Depression or any of the other mental diagnoses.
Who profits: The State Department of Education, the mental health and counseling Industry, the Pharmaceutical company and the money that is kicked back by lobbyists for politicians special interest and of course the legal profession.
All this at the cost of your child's Health and welfare.
