Try to access the Web site of the Archives of General Psychiatry, and you may have to abide an ad for the antidepressant Pristiq before you can enter. (JAMA and its Archives Journals “do not endorse the advertised product,” you’ll be assured.)

The repressive family law that just went into effect in Afghanistan, at least, should make us pause to consider whether there is a good outcome in that nation.

Kids in foster care carry profound pain. It’s the pain that stems from the abuse, abandonment and trauma they have experienced during their character-forming years.
This pain often is revealed in various ways: anger, depression, rebelliousness and violence. For the state, it’s easier and less expensive to sedate them with medication than to help them heal.
Officials from the Florida’s Department of Children & Families have finally admitted that they too often use drugs to manage troubled children rather than to treat them.
Note: But it’s okay because DCF did it.
