Mental Illness Reform: A call for action
By Frank J. Granett R.ph.

After Friday’s suicide massacre and tragic loss of innocent children, our society must
reform how traditional medicine assesses and treats children with ADD behavioral
conditions as well as mental illness. For over two decades, children and young adults
battling behavioral conditions have not received comprehensive bio-assessments
for causation of symptoms. Our culture has allowed the American Psychiatric
Association to have free rein on children without ruling out nutritional, physiological and
environmental risk factors prior to premature drug therapy.

Safer prescribing protocols in children must become the new mandate. The FDA placed
all ADD stimulant and psychiatric medications on their Med Guide Alert warning list due
to the increased potential to cause harm, especially in the child population. Although
ADD stimulant drug therapy is effective in children, the long term side effects have been
described and warned by the FDA. Suicide is now the second leading cause of death
in the United States college student population. We, as a nation, should realize that
suicides, as well as violent suicide massacres destroy families.

The national movement for change and action is already in motion as discussed in
the book Over Medicatinh Our Youth. Many prestigious universities including
Johns Hopkins School of Medicine instruct their medical students the systematic and
comprehensive bio-assessments prior to drug therapy. The Action Plan for Childhood
Behavioral Conditions is also discussed in the book to help parents help their children
determine causation prior to premature drug therapy.
