this is the 2nd time i have posted this so please dont delete. if its offensive to someone i apologize in advance. my ex wants to put our 6yr old on meds for mental illness. i been researching teen suicide rates and 90% of teen suicides have a mental illness diagnoses and most are ether on meds or recently off. what i dont get, since 1980 the rate of teen suicide is about the same, the math doesnt add up with so many more on meds with mental illness. how can it not be higher than it was 20 to 30 years back? anyone know more about this?
