Minors Prescribed Psychotopic Drugs Must Be in Therapy- Prevent Acts of Violence in School

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

This petition is to implore the US Federal Government and/or state governments to implement mandatory behavioral therapy and mental health counseling for all minors prescribed psychotropic medication for the duration of their use. This includes, but is not limited to: antidepressants, anxiety medications, attention-deficit-disorder medications, and personality disorder medications. Although many believe the answer to solving these mass shootings/acts of violence is to take away guns from registered gun owners, the fact of the matter is there will still be millions of people who own guns illegally as well as all military personnel. It is impractical and dangerous to remove a persons right to defend themselves. One factor in almost every single school shooting that has been brought to the attention of the public is the use of psychotropic drugs. At least 36 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence have been committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 172 wounded and 80 killed (in other school shootings, information about their drug use was never made public — neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs or undergone other behavioral therapy.) At least 27 international drug regulatory agency warnings have been issued on psychiatric drugs being linked to mania, violence, hostility, aggression, psychosis and homicidal ideation (thoughts or fantasies of homicide that can be planned). Guns do not kill people, ill-minded people do. In this case, children who are not equipped to handle today’s social and personal stresses. Please sign this to encourage our government to be proactive in the actual CAUSE of these devastating acts.
