The Truth About Suicide – Part 1


The Truth about Suicide – Part 1 – This video discusses information collected by the Drug Awareness Warning Network; DAWN. DAWN is part of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration with the Department of Health and Human Services of the United States Government. One thing that DAWN keeps track of is emergency room visits and suicides connected to drug and medication use. I think you will find it shocking just how many people attempt or actually successfully complete suicide while taking psychiatric drugs. DAWN even breaks down the number of suicide related to specific categories of medications such as SSRIs, antidepressants, antipsychotics, anxiety medications, stimulants, etc. We normally think that drugs like Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor or Wellbutrin as preventing suicide.
