Suicides ‘unchanged by pill ban’

BBC NEWS | Health | Suicides ‘unchanged by pill ban’.


The above article is very interesting, I have known many people under the age of 18 who have sturggled to cope with depression and other mental health condtions who have simply been turned away when attempting to get help thanks to a reluctancese to perscribe any treatment.

Drugs are not allways the answer but in many areas of the UK there is a very long wait for non emergancy mental health care, in Gosport I spent almost a year on a waiting list for counselling!

So if GP’s can’t prescribe antidepressant medications to under 18’s and waiting lists are huge what are young people supposed to do?
