Thread Name: BS: Ban anti-depressant drugs, not guns
Subject: RE: BS: Ban anti-depressant drugs, not guns
Well, I certainly think that school officials..certainly principal, school psychologist and school nurse, have a right to know what medications a student is on. I also think that anyone in a dating situation needs to know what medications someone is on and make appropriate decisions as to whether they can date them..a 15 year old should not have to deal with a bipolar person and not know about it, even if they are quite fine with medications. Teach your children this.

Also, it has been suggested that a screening for drugs, prescribed and illegal, be done in every older child and adolescent physical. Adolescence, plus troubled life, plus underlying mental illness plus meth plus being born male in a time that devalues males and does not train them properly is a bad combination.
