Video: Bruce E. Levine on “Generation RX”

A panel of psychiatrists and experts, including Chelsea Green author Bruce E. Levine, Ph.D., discussed the overmedication of children and young people in America, and the almost knee-jerk reaction of many doctors to prescribe mind-altering psychotropics, on the TV program “Your Turn” on Tampa Bay’s Fox 13.

Because a lot of these kids, at some level, know that there’s nothing essentially wrong with them, and that nobody’s trying to figure out why they’re behaving disruptively.
