Why I support the Alliance to empower parents with documented risks of prescribed psychotropic drugs on children
The reason I agreed to write this blog is because knowledge about KMAD is so greatly needed, as it literally saves the lives of children, teens and their families. I have referred patients and family members to this important website and organization, whereby, the information about psychotropic (mind-altering) drugs has led to greater understanding about these medications. It is that foundation, understanding the pros and cons to taking, or not taking, a psychotropic mind-altering drug, that allows for true informed consent.
Empowering Parents with Facts about Psychotropic Drug Dependence and Documented Risks
My name is Mathy Milling Downing. I am a teacher, counselor, international child advocate, and a grieving mother who has experienced first-hand the tragedy of losing a child to a prescription drug. For the past 16 years, I have dedicated my time and effort to speaking out on national media and in many public forums, to help forewarn parents of the adverse side effects that can be caused by prescription psychotropic (mind-altering) drugs.
