First Unitarian Church Portland Oregon
Psychotropic Drugs and Children
A lecture given by
Robert Whitaker Award Winning Harvard writer and journalist
June 15, 2010
Robert Whitaker, author of Anatomy of an Epidemic, discusses the disturbing effects of psychotropic drugs prescribed for children. Such medications, used for ADHD, depression, and anxiety, for example, have become commonplace over the past 30 years. This practice profoundly alters the lives of the children, and so now we, as a society, urgently need to address this question: do the medications help the children thrive and grow up into healthy adults? Or does this practice do more harm than good over the long term.

Robert will be giving a talk on Friday May 11 and 12, 2012, concerning children and adults. We hope to meet you there. First Unitarian Church Portland Oregon 700-9:00pm
