Curbing Use of Psychiatric Drugs for Children

“…the government will

inform parents and teachers about the risks of such drugs,

the Food and Drug Administration will develop new drug

labels, the National Institutes of Health will begin a huge

nationwide study of Ritalin use in children under the age of

6, and the White House will hold a conference this fall on

the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness in very young

children.” [New York Times]
