Young people unhappy with information they receive about mental health medicines


It seems there has been a really rapid rise in the number of young people suffering from mental health problems. This point is made in the book "Silence Your Mind" by Dr Ramesh Manocha,GP and researcher at the university of Sydney in Australia. Dr Manocha gives the background for the observation and considers some of the evidence. One doctor talking on Thought for the Day on BBC Radio 4 rather uncharitably said that the fault was with the young themselves,but there are others who say otherwise. If this is the time of the painful birth of collective consciousness (see some of the things said in Sahaja Yoga or in The Light of the Koran by Flore Descieux for example),then we are all up against a problem,which is quite a challenge. I don't know that medicine with a green prescription pad is the way forward.
